Delightful Rose Cakes

I have this baking pan, which I love from NordicWare, it makes Rose Cakes. Charming! Kaia is also crazy about it and would do me anything, including going to bed early, just to help me baking a cake in this special pan.

The below recipe came with the pan, I type it in here for you to try it. It can also be made in a regular muffin pan as well, so go ahead and take your chances. Alternatively you can buy the pan online it’s worth every penny!!
