Rose Bundt Cakes

Will you accept this rose? ;)

Who else is watching The Bachelor this season? I admit, I wasn’t sure if I could get on board this season with Colton as the new Bachelor, but here I am…recording the show as I write. The girls are very young this season! And Colton is very “young,” too – hehe. Anyway, with Valentines’s Day around the corner and another season of The Bachelor being on the verizon, I was inspired to bake up roses!

Mini Rose Bundt Cakes

I discovered the Nordicware “Sweetheart Roses” Bundt Pan at Williams Sonoma recently, and I knew I had to make something with it! I picked up a bag of Cara Cara oranges at my local Trader Joe’s, and I went to work! Have you ever tried a Cara Cara orange? They taste like most typical oranges, however their inside citrus bellies have a pink hue, and I love pink – perfect for Valentine’s Day.

These "Rosebundt" cakes sort of evolved as I was making them. I knew I wanted them to have a citrusy—pink color and icing, but I had no idea they would sparkle by the time I was done with them. Who doesn’t love a little bundt bling, am I right?

After I iced these rosebundts with a pink Cara Cara frosting, I lightly sprinkled them with a little Cake Craft White Pearl Dust. Magical!

Rose Bundt Cakes with Cara Cara Icing for Valentine's Day.

This bundt cake recipe yields 3 dozen roses, so you’ll have plenty of the to give out for Valentine’s Day or you could also give them by the dozen. Trust me when I say, the flavors are amazing. These treats have the perfect amount of sweet and citrus and they’ll have you craving more. I hope you decide to make these and let me know how they turn out!
