Please provide the reason why you think this review is inappropriate.
I only made the icing, and as another reviewer said it was pretty sour and cream cheesey. I added another cup of sugar, 2 more tablespoons grenadine, and one more teaspoon vanilla extract. This cut down on the sourness, but it's still pretty strong. If you don't like cream cheese, I suggest getting regular vanilla icing and adding 3 tablespoons grenadine.

These cupcakes were a real success, I'm definitely going to make more for Easter dinner. I used French crystallized roses instead of the rose petals:

I cheated and used a boxed cake mix, so my review is for the frosting and rose petals only. It was more labor intensive than I thought it would be to make the rose petals perfectly sugared, but they were really beautiful and the frosting was incredible.

The cupcake batter was easy to make and tasted great. However the frosting wasnt so good, extremly rich and sour.

I tried this recipe out as a practice for an upcomming party. I loved it. The actual cupcake was yummo but best of all was the frosting. The color was impressive. What a perfect and simply elegant addition to a party.
This cake recipe was so easy and so tasty. It had great texture, flavor, aroma and color ( a real yellow cake.I will be using it again for a cupcake tower for my daughter's birthday party.
