Wilton Two-Tone Rose Cupcakes

The pink and yellow roses that blossom on these cupcakes are made using the easy Ribbon Rose technique. Pink roses symbolize gratitude and admiration, and yellow roses are the classic symbol of friendship. We suppose that makes these cupcakes the perfect dessert to share among good friends. Use the Wilton Color Right Performance Color System to get the same colors each and everytime you decorate desserts.
