Hoping someone maybe able to help! i want to be able to pipe roses on to cupcakes for my Bouquets but finding it very difficult it seems to be the only thing i cant do and is now annoying me!
Any help would be fab!!
Thank you xx
Here are a few posts to read that have links to the different methods of making cupcake roses.
I use the 2D tip to do roses. You can see some in my photos .... HTH.
thank you people i will be trying these tonight! fingers crossed! x
Depending on which rose you want...
For the rose swirl I use tip 1M
For the actual rose (petals) I use tip#103 (check out my pictures)
I sometimes have trouble rotating the cupcake-it's a bit more difficult than with a rose nail. You can buy a large rose nail and if you use a large rose tip pipe onto that and then move the flower to your cupcake. The only advice I have is to practice, practice, practice. My largest rose nail is a Wilton 14 and I like to use a Wilton 126 rose tip or a 2D. The 14 rose nail is actually about the size of the top of the cupcake. You can also secure your cupcake to the tip to help with the rotation. For super large roses I use a Wilton 127D.
Hi iv done a phew roses so far and had real fun doing them because you ca get so many different looks. in my pictures i have a tyte rose that i done but have done some really nice open ones in purple tht i still have to upload. i done them with a large rose nozzel.
With your problem with rotating i find i do each petal seperatly so its easy to stop and turn then do the next bit, also gives me 2 minuites to stop and give my hand a rest
Wilton sells a nail for cupcakes. It's white plastic and has a lip around it to keep the cupcake on it. I don't own one, but I've seen it at Michaels.
I have better luck holding a cupcake at an angle and working my way around than I do holding it upright and turning it. I can only get so far before my wrist turn is maxed out.
