I have been trying to make rose budds but just don't get them right. I have been using the Wilton 1,2,3 step guide in their book and online but I just don't get it...Is there any easy way to learn how to make these?
I had the same problem with those directions! I finally figured out how to do it but I'm a lefty so if I were to explain I would only confuse you more..that is, unless you are a lefty too!
I am a righty but thanks for answering so quickly...I hope there is someone who can help me out on this one.
Here is a link. Is this what you are talking about?
I want to make sure that I am talking about the same thing.
Sometimes Wilton makes things sound harder than they are. I remember trying to make a mum using their directions. After getting frustrated, I finally just found my own way.
There's a rosebud tutorial here at the bottom of this page. I think the directions are easier to follow. I hope it helps you.
These definately look better than Wilton. You can actually see where the icing is going.
and here they have a video demo
Hope that helps too..
.,.. Opps! you said rose BUD.. well those links are for full on roses.. Sorry!
I believe gegon is looking for a Rose Bud tutorial; those last two posts refer to a fully bloomed rose.
I went to the Food Network site and watched the vidoes on basket weave, roses, and shell borders. For anyone who is doubtful about their skills and needs an ego boost...you should watch these! Especially the basket weave video!!! They are terrible. I bet any one of us on this site could do better! And the cakes they use look like the ones I've trashed because I was ashamed to sell them! Can you tell how outraged I am?
In all fairness, I guess the Food Network videos are for the everyday baker, so maybe they "dumbed" down their skills. I hope so!
Ok are you looking to make a rose bud out of buttercream right on to the cake or are you looking to make a rose bud that you make on the nail and then out right on to the cake??
I think I saw one on Cali4Dawn's website. You could try her.
I'm looking for the rose bud directly on the cake, not on a nail...The one made on the nail I have no problem with, it is the one directly on the cake that has me going crazy.
Here's one on wilton.com.
Mine is directly on the cake. I do not make mine like Wilton. here is a sample:
Here is the tutorial (it's 4 pics long):
