Hi Everyone,
I'm VERY new to cake decorating but I've fallen in love! I'm attempting a cupcake bouqet to take to easter dinner tomorrow night...
I've got it all ready (the pot, the styrofoam ball, cupcakes are baked ect)

I just need to know how (step by step!) to pipe a rosette on top of the cupcake to make it look nice? I'm afaid mine will only look like a swirl and not roses at all!!

Someone please help!

I haven't done any cc bouquets, but I have done cupcakes that had "roses" on top.

For these, I just piped a swirl with regular bc. Use tip#2D. Start at the center and just swirl in one motion to the outside edge. Then I used tip#252 and added a few leaves. They were a big hit. I think this is what you mean by "rosettes". HTH

What you need to do is go on
then on the left hand side of the screen you want
Decorating Techniques - then - Basic Decorating Tech - then -- under the heading - Buttercream - scroll down until you find rosette. Good instructions and pictures.
Hope this helps
