Rose Cupcakes for St. Thérèse

The Little Flower of Jesus by Sister Julita

Two boxes of cake mix = cupcakes to celebrate three back-to-back feast days for our family of nine with just a few leftover! I baked the white cupcakes yesterday, while baking the face for St. Jerome's lion, and decorated them this afternoon with cream cheese frosting, white roses from Wilton, and my attempt at some ribbon roses and leaves with the extra frosting… They are far from perfect but still turned out pretty!


"You know well enough that Our Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, nor even at their difficulty, but at the love with which we do them." ~ St. Thérèse


  1. Great job on the cupcake roses! Did you make the crocheted St. Thérèse? Or was it from an Etsy site? Love your blog!

    1. It was actually a baby shower gift from my friend Amy back in 2009 when I was pregnant with Rose! It is still one of Rose's favorite dolls! Amy actually sells her pattern here:

  4. Years later, and I am still blown away with all you do! And, with such love! I have not been very good about commenting on any of my favorite blogs lately, but I still enjoy visiting and read nearly all of your posts. And, your blog is one of the first resources that I go to when I am looking for a creative idea to "borrow"! :) Peace. +JMJ+
