Pink Bubbly La Fleurette

Pink Bubbly La Fleurette

/ My Outfit: Sunglasses: Prada, Denim Shirt: Edgars, Floral Pants: Forever New, Black Tee: Cotton On J.C Le Roux sent me a bottle of their new Non-Alcoholic bubbly, La Fleurette, just in time for spring! Together with a fun press pack, they challenged me to create a post that would express the floral and fabulous tones of La Fleurette Non-Alcoholic. The stakes are high! As in Louboutin heels high! After popping the cork, I poured myself a glass of La Fleurette Non-Alcoholic. Sitting in my kitchen, I tried to come up with something exciting. Something unique and fun that would not only excite me and the peeps at J.C Le Roux, but also my fabulous StyleScoop readers too. I found myself staring right at the answer… my mixer! September also marks the month of StyleScoop’s fifth Blogoversary and I had been wanting to bake a birthday cake. What better opportunity? So I went with a rose inspired cake and used La Fleurette Non-Alcoholic in the ingredients. After doing some research, I discovered that “Fleurette” means “an ornament resembling a flower”, so my cake idea blossomed into a cupcake bouquet. This was really fun and easy to do. I got some tips on how to make a cupcake bouquet…

Although they still tasted darn good, they didn’t look as they should have. I had some “issues” in the kitchen, but I guess that’s what happens when you attempt a professional chef’s recipe on your first cupcake attempt! Yes, first cupcake attempt! My blog has always been about trying new things (trends, makeup looks etc) and sharing them, so even though my cupcakes did’t look like perfect little pastries, I decided to show you guys anyway instead of just giving you the recipie! Maybe on my second attempt they will look as good as they tasted, but that’s a very big maybe if I’ll try again! This recipe is very time consuming, requires lots of preparation and lots of washing up – so brace yourselves! Almond cup cake, orange curd, rose water meringue, candied kumquat, crystallized rose petals, fresh pomegranate seeds I started with the orange…
