Drop flowers are a great way to add flowers quickly. Pipe drop flowers in buttercream directly on your cake, or pipe in royal in advance and place your flowers anywhere. Flowers will be sharper in definition when piped in royal.
The rosette has the tight, swirling look of a rose, but is achieved in one continuous rotation, rather than with wrapped layers of petals. Single rosettes are also used as candleholders on top of a cupcake.

I only did the crib part of this cake and put it on a large oval cake. I didn't retrace the lines on the back of the pieces like it states in the instructions and it came out fine. I did make several of the pieces in case anything broke but thankfully it didn't. I also weaved in some ribbon and that made it look really pretty.
