My parent's anniversary is saturday and I would love to make this cake for them. Not the top tier, just the bottom with some flowers on top.. LOVE the bottom tier and was wondering if anyone could give me a guess on what tip was used for the scroll work.. And also, is there a tutorial on how to make the small folded roses? My whole cake will be made out of buttercream, so not sure if that can be done or not but figured I would ask..

I have Wilton food coloring and americolor.. What color do you think was used to get that pretty dark/dusty pink color??

Thank you for any help!

the tip looks to be a regular round tip probably a 4 or 5 and the rose buds wilton has billions of tutorials on them. use a 104 tip to make it. good luck

I agreethe stems are kind of thick, probably a #5. The entire cake is buttercream... you can pipe the rose buds directly on the cake with tip #104. If you search the Wilton site and don't find rose buds, sweet peas are very similar. Dusty Rose coloring would work.
