Rose & Pistachio Cupcakes


Pin It


Hope I'm not making you crazy with all these pink themed recipes. I've come across a lot of delicious recipes in the past few weeks, all in pink. Only difficulty was choosing my favorites as I wanted to try all of them. I love all things Pink! And if you are like me, you would love these cupcakes. Try these delicious & cute cupcakes with crushed pistachio nuts and a hint of fragrant rosewater to create a very special treat for your loved ones :)
