Brown Hantaran Cupcakes

The thought of making cakes or cupcakes for hantaran always makes me worry because all the paraded gifts are admired for their aesthetic value.
Nora asked for hantaran cupcakes for with brownish gold theme. Gold ???  I've never used edible gold dust  although have been shown the method in Yasmin bakingproject class I attended. I was relief when the samples pictures Nora emailed carries beige/brown/yellow colors.
These roses are made using 2 different methods, 1) using 5 petals blossom cutters 2) using round cutter for every petals. Personally, I prefer the round petals method because the roses appear fuller.
And for bekal during their 4-hour drive to rumah kenduri, these cupcakes with buttercream frosting.
