Abundant Roses Cake
A simple white cake can instantly become a vision of beauty with the addition of roses and rose buds. Make this magic happen on your cake for a special occasion.
In advance, make 24 pink roses and 24 pink rosebuds with tip 12 and tip 104 in royal icing. Let dry.
Bake and cool 2-layer cake and ice. Position roses and buds on cake. Pipe tip 3 calyxes in green on rose buds. Pipe tip 352 leaves around roses at base.
Finish your petit fours or cupcakes with one pretty rosebud. Made in buttercream, this flat flower can be piped directly on the cake in your favorite colors. Or make them ahead using royal icing. On cakes, use the rosebud as an accent or in floral spray bouquet.
Create this magnificent rose - the most popular icing flower of them all. With practice, your roses will have the just-picked look of real fresh garden roses!
A variety of leaves will help give your cakes a more realistic garden feel. Add piping gel to your icing to help keep your leaves from breaking.
