Client sent this image. Not quite sure how to achieve this rose on her cupcakes. Anyone have suggestions? Is it just a swirl from inside out?
Will be using white chocolate buttercream.

Tip 1M, start your swirl in the center and swirl out to the edge. I hold the bag at a very slight angle, though in your photo it looks like the center is piped straight up with the angle coming in as you start to swirl.

Here's some I did with the entire swirl at a slight angle:

DrakeGore, thank you. I'll check it out. I'm familiar with how to do the 1M swirl rose for cupcakes, but this particular picture puzzled me for some reason. Perhaps it is as PiccoloChellie stated, that the angle of the bag is different. I'll definitely check out the site you recommended though!

PiccoloChellie,
Thanks for the suggestion of the bag angle. That may be my issue!

Here's the video, by SeriousCakes. She shows several BC rose techniques, and the one straight on the cupcake is toward the end.[/url]

I think it's the swirl in this one that you're lookin' for icon_biggrin.gif

I have found that the amount of pressure you use when squeezing the icing out greatly affects the look of the rose. HTH
