Boulder’s Best Cupcake


When it comes to Colorado cupcakes, I am partial to Happy Cakes in the Highlands. But I stopped by Tee and Cakes in Boulder today and was beguiled by the pretty pink and chocolate mix.

But what really won me over was the flavor of the frosting: Rosewater Buttercream. WAT? As you might know, I have a thing for roses. Not even the flower itself but the scent. And while this little puppy didn’t have a strong smell, the flavor was awesome. It toned down some of the sweetness of normal buttercream and gave it a bit of afternoon tea charm.

The icing of the icing on the cake? The little pinkies on top were candied rose petals.
