It's handy when I just need something done, like 'smooth this cake for me real quick, here's how you do it' or 'help me get through this level on my stupid candy crush game, this is how it works'. But really annoying!

Thank you so much, Baking Queen! I really love doing them. I LOVE the way the cupcakes look. I am always thrilled when I have a quick small budget cake for a girl, because I just Plop some roses on it, and done!

Your welcome:) LOL I absolutely love doing simple cakes like that! What could be more feminine than a cake full of roses! I haven't atrempted to do them on cupcakes..I think I'm a little nervous to try that lol! Do you do it on a nail first or straight on the cupcake itself? I guess the whole 3,5,7 rule for the petals wouldn't apply for that huh?

I stuck the cupcake on a nail, with buttercream, and used a large tip, I forget what it is, but I remember I had to pinch one end of it a bit before I could pipe. It took 3 or 4 tries for the first one, to get the technique down, but then it was smooth sailing. I have never counted my petals in my life, I just start with 3, because it looks nice, then pipe until it looks how I want it icon_wink.gif They were the grease proof liners, so I was able to just wipe the buttercream off the bottom, and no one was the wiser.

I tried the plastic cupcake nail that Wilton has, but found it to big.

why can't my roses look like that.  I have taken 2 of Wilton piped icing classes and I still can't make roses!!  It is making me crazy!  I can't seem to do them with fondant either.  What is wrong with me?  I can do all the other stuff, why can't I make roses?  The bottom (butt) of the rose is always so big and bulky!  I want it to be small. Real roses do not have giant thick butts. Can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong?

can't help you. I suck at them too.

Just wanted to share a tip I share with my students. In order to avoid switching tips to make the base I tell them to put a dollop of frosting on their nail then attach a Hershey kiss. Use this as the base. Then your customers get a nice surprise inside when they eat the rose. I also tell them remember big bottom on bottom so they remember to have the narrow end of their tip pointing up. Then its like going over the rainbow. You squeeze go up to the top of the rainbow as you turn your nail then slide down the other side. As you do another row if it is too hard to tilt your tip to "fan out" your petals try slightly tilting your nail away from you. You frosting should be stiff enough that if you touch it, it doesn't stick to you but not so thick that it "feather" jagged edges when you pipe out petals. HTH and good luck

Ah that makes sense thanks I will have to give them a try. I am going to work at a Cupcakery soon so must try to learn all about cupcakes 101 Your so kind its been nice chatting!

Try using a hershey kiss for the center so you can focus just on the petals for now.  Just adhere it to your flower nail with a dab of buttercream.  Also, maybe consider buying the Wilton ready-to-use icing (if you buy the small can you will probably want to thin it a little) Once you get the technique down, go back to your homemade icing.

marla--i love the hershey kiss idea

 

any excuse to have to buy them--oh the burden ;)

 

however my deal is if i got any roses made after feasting/gourging on most of the chocolate

 

i would soon be destroying those roses to get rescue the candy I trapped in there ;)

 

i mean how do you get past the smellll????

 

good thing i make them the other way or i'd have never made it as a decorator icon_biggrin.gif
