I was wondering if anyone has had success re-creating buttercream flowers in the style of Roland Winbeckler I purchased his book on Buttercream flowers and it all looks so amazing. I have to admit, I have not tried these techniques, it seems difficult and overwhelming ( I am a newbie). Has anybody tried to replicate these and do you have any tips for success?

Ooohhhhh yes - I love doing work like thaticon_smile.gif It really isn't hard once you practice a bit. I never did roses like his but most of the other stuff isn't very hard. Read thru it - several times - then prop the book in front of u and go for iticon_smile.gif

I havent seen his books on flowers, but I did just now get his books on piping figures with b/c and molding...I also was afraid and found it very hard to do takes PRACTICE...PRACTICE...the good thing is you can scrap up the b/c and start over and over.

go to you tube and type in how to make butter cream can see it first hand. Im a visual person. it helped me alot.

good luck.

Thank you! I know, I really need to practice more often! I don't really get the opportunity to do cakes other than for my kids.
