I also created a fun novelty charm cupcake topper to look like the rose under the dome in Beauty and the Beast.

I found the mini domes on the bead aisle in Michael’s.  The official name is Elemints (that’s the correct spelling) Tall Oxidized Brass Cloches by Bead Landing™.  Click HERE—>>> DOMES to shop.  They are a little pricey so I would encourage you to watch for sales (mine were 40% off) and coupons that also apply to sale items (I used one for an additional 20% off).

I couldn’t find any mini red roses so I decided to buy the craft roses pictured below and paint them red.  Click HERE—>>>FLOWERS to shop.

Use a small paint brush to paint flowers red.  Let dry completely.

Put rose into the dome and trim the end.

Put a small dot of hot glue in the center on the bottom of the dome; hold the rose in place for a few seconds.  Let the glue dry.

I used Gorilla Super Glue for the next step.

Add a ring of super glue to the inside edge of the base (not the dome).

Sprinkle some beads into the dome; insert rose first and press the base to the dome.  Hold for a couple of seconds.

So here’s the secret to making the beautiful rose topped cupcakes.

First….supplies.

1M pipping tip

16-inch pipping bag

red gel food coloring

Refer to the recipe and dividing amounts.  Fit the pipping bag with a 1M pipping tip and cut off end.  Use a straight long narrow icing spatula (like an off set spatula but straight) and paint the white frosting around the inside of the pipping bag making sure to leave the center free of white frosting.  Fill the center with the reddish pink frosting.

ANOTHER OPTION is to fill the bag with just the reddish pink frosting.

Start in the center of the cupcake and in a spiral motion work your way to the outer edge.  It’s VERY important to only go around once.
