I've never bothered to make roses out of WC, even for WC cakes I use BC roses and decorations. Most icings are sweet. If there isnt any salt in your recipe, add a little bit of popcorn (extra fine) salt, and/or a couple drops of lemon juice helps cut the sweetness a bit. but dont use so much that to flavor it lemon (unless its a lemon cake, yum)!

You might be looking for Rich's Bettercreme. I think that's what they use at Walmart. You can buy it at GFS and some cake supply stores. HTH.
