I see a lot of the piped roses that consist of swirled frosting, rather than the ones created on a nail, petal by petal. I don't know what they are called, however (sorry!) What is the technique for this; just pipe them in a circular motion twisting the bag a little? Its truly a beautiful technique!

Yes. No need to twist the bag.

The trick to a swirl rose is that you swirl your wrist not your armicon_smile.gif that's what makes the petals fold in on themselves. Also they're mostly made with a Wilton 1M tip.
