tasty cakes, used red rose petals, which gave the cakes a nice mixed colour effect. i used self raising flour instead of baking powder and added just a tiny amount of salt

Awsome recipe. i didn't use the rose petals however, because i did not have any. The lemon added a lovely flavor, and the cupcakes were moist, and awsome. I frosted mine with a light lemon frosting, and they are to die for. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks so much! :)
