How do I start applying buttercream roses to a three tiered cake? I'm making a baby shower cake and the customer wants roses cascading down the cake. Does anyone have good tips or instructions on how to do this. I have never applied cascading flowers before. Thanks
Actually, the cascade starts at the bottom and works its way up. If your bc roses are air dried, just add a dab of BC to the back of each rose and start stacking them upward. The lower roses will help support each one that's added above. If adding leaves, you don't really need the dab of icing if the roses are placed on after a couple of leaves are piped.
You might want to send a PM to Indydebi, and look through her cakes. I remember one she did recently that had a stunning BC rose cascade.
Sassy, thanks very much for the compliment!

Thanks Sassy74 and IndiDebbie, I so appreciate both of your help and the pictures. This is exactly what I needed to know.
Unlimited, I wanted to also thank you for the instructions. They will be very very helpful.
