Friday morning was a brilliant morning for me at the Good Food and Wine show at the Dome. It was brilliant to visit each of the stands and see, smell and taste the beautiful food and drink on display at the show. I sampled everything from olives to champagne and have to admit it was great fun. As usual I was more excited to taste the sweeter samples including fudge, chocolate and toffee but it was while sampling camembert cheese that I found this delicious Rose Petal Syrup. La Petite France Rose Petal Syrup comes in a beautiful little jar but what a delight to sample something so fragrantly delicious.
This syrup was devine on the camembert but for me the challenge was to try the syrup on my cupcakes. I made vanilla cupcakes and then a cream and cream cheese icing to which I added a little of the syrup. After I iced the cupcake with this icing I then drizzled a little of the syrup over the cupcakes. The result as you will see is a beautiful looking cupcake with a gorgeous aroma of rose petals and they tasted as brilliant as they looked. The petals in the syrup have a wonderful soft texture and are a real surprise to the taste buds when you bite into the icing.
