Just wondering if anyone knows of any really good buttercream flower tutorials? I was on youtube last nite and watched a few- and was shocked at how horrible they were! icon_eek.gificon_confused.gifthumbsdown.gif

If I had a web cam I'd make one myself! icon_lol.gif

Are you looking for a particular type of BC flower?

Such a great question - hoping for some good answers. I took the Wilton courses in the hopes of learning this, and actually quit the last class as it wasn't being taught.

The best book i have seen for buttercream flowers is Roland Winbecklers Buttercream flowers. He has really easy to follow directions and pipes most of his stuff directly on the cake. Which is a great time saver. And i don't think the book is that expensive maybe about $15 give or take.

Hmm....cakegenie...might have to check that out.

I have been a huge Roland Winbeckler fan for many years!

Actually, I was hoping to find a decent tutorial that I could refer students to, and maybe find one with a new flower or two to use for a demo I am doing this weekend. Looks like I'll just have to stick with what I already have planned.
