Just a short while back, there was a photo submitted of a cake that was covered in butter cream roses. It looked like the roses were made by swirling the tip of the pastry bag round and round. I have tried looking for directions on how to do this, but cannot find it. Do any of you know? Thank you so very much.

You mean rosettes? You pretty much nailed it. I use my 2D tip, pick a starting point and start making swirls until you have what looks like a round rose. Repeat repeat repeat until your whole cake is covered. Very easy, and very impressive looking. Takes a lot of icing tho.

Thank you Cakification.....I am assuming you start in the center of the rosette and work your way around and around until you get the size you want?

Here is the original design and tutorial for the cake you're talking about, she's wonderful! icon_smile.gif It's been very popular this season, I just did a wedding cake version of it earlier this week.

Get a HUGE piping bag, cause you will get sick of refilling a small one. Two large rosettes drains a standard size bag.

I love love love the look too! I did one myself for my Mom's birthday in March and yes, it used a LOT of buttercream! Photo in my pics. So much fun to do, too.
