With their sugar-brushed flower petals and fragrant, rose-flavored glaze, these delicate cupcakes are pretty in pink. On the inside, jewels of candied ginger are hidden in a zesty ginger cake that's just sweet enough to make you, well, blush.
This basic cake can be doubled or tripled to create
Individual Baked Alaskas, the
Chrysanthemum Cake, the
Chenille Panel Cake, or the Flower Power Cake. You will need to make enough batter to fill each cake pan three-quarters full. The batter can be made in batches for the larger cake layers.
