Lattice & Rosettes Cake

Simple techniques are all you need for this lovely cake: dots, lines, rosettes, leaves and shells…the first techniques a cake decorator learns!


Difficulty: Somewhat Easy


Step 1

Make 4 3/4 cups of buttercream icing: Tint 2 1/4 cups light rose (thin with 2 tablespoons light corn syrup). Tint 3/4 cup dark rose. Tint 1/4 cup green. Reserve 1 1/2 cups white.

Step 2

Bake and cool 2-layer cake (bake two 1 1/2 in. high layers to make a 3 in. high cake). Ice smooth in light rose. Mark 1 1/2 in. from top edge and trace heart shape for lattice with toothpick. Pipe tip 5 lattice heart. Pipe tip 18 rosettes in dark rose around edge of lattice. Add tip 352 leaves. Pipe tip 21 shell bottom border. Add tip 3 dots.
