Rose birthday cupcakes

250g butter
300g sugar
4 eggs
1 cup milk
2 drops almond extract
1 baking powder
3 cups flour
500-600 g strawberries

Mix the butter with the sugar. Add the eggs one at a time, mix the ingredients after each egg with a mixer for two minutes. Add milk and essence. Mix the flour with baking powder and add it in small portions while you continue to stir. Finally add sliced strawberries into small pieces, stir, pour into a muffin trays and bake in a preheated 200 degrees oven.


Split the fondant into parts and paint in different colors. I divided it into three and then added different amount of the same color so we can get different shades of the color.
Tear  a small piece of dough with a lighter color and make a ball. Then tapered it with fingers until it gets like a thin sheet with a circular or elliptical shape. Make it into a cone to get the heart of the rose. From a slightly darker color tear  more pieces,  shape them as a half circle and attach them to the core as petals. Finally, trim the bottom of the final rose with a knife and curve the edges of each petal. Leave the rose to dry out on a tooth stick and then pin it to the cupcake.

Roll the green fondant on a  smooth surface and cut out the leaves in desired shapes.
