vintage rose lemon cupcakessometimes when i stare at the tray of massive piping tips i have, i count, and realised i’d probably only used 3 or 4 of them… and best… the 3 or 4, are usually the same pattern piping tip in different sizes…

the one piping tip i had always been keen to use is the rose petal tip… and why not pipe a vintage rose? ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ
