Rosette cake fail... help?

post #1 of 23

No matter what, my roses on the side of the cake fall and look melted. Any tips or tricks to a perfect rose covered cake?

I've done this design a few million times...well, not that many.   I always crumb coat my cakes and let firm up in the frig...overnight for me.   I've never had a rosette fall.  Don't know what your steps are....or your butter cream recipe.   Please give more details so maybe we can figure out your problem.    I'm assuming the rosettes that are piped on the side of the cake..?

Yes, sorry. I crmb coat and let it chill, then pipe my roses from top to bottom. I make my buttercream with unsalted butter, shortening, and powdered sugar (with a dash of vanilla and milk). I have tried a firmer consistency and a softer one. Both have failed me.

perhaps the butter cream is a little bit too light

Those pics are cute. Too bad about that huge thing on the kid's head, though.

Cake is adorable! I am doing my niece's in a pink ombre style with mini sugar beads. She is going to be wearing a huge bow too! Lol

I guess since most babies just have on diapers....the bow gives them the "girly" look! LOL

Ps thats an amazing cake ddaigle.

My recipie for vanilla buttercream is
250g unsalted lurpak butter
500g icing sugar
A dash of milk
1 tsp vanilla

I crumbcoat the cake and leavw in the fridge for at least 2 hours...but I dont put the buttercream in the fridge. Once the cake is chilled I pipe on the cake starting from the bottom.
Once its all piped I then leave it in the fridge to firm up.

Hope it helps...let us know how u get on xx
