Bake and cool 8 x 3 in. round cake. Ice smooth with spatula. Use tip 3 and white icing to pipe dots in groups of 3 randomly over top and sides of cake.
Use tip 104 and pink icing to pipe approximately 11 Ribbon Roses. Use tip 18 to pipe a mound of white icing on center of cake and position Ribbon Roses. Use tip 352 and green icing to pipe leaves. Use tip 18 and white icing to pipe shell bottom border. Use tip 18 and white icing to pipe rosette border over shell border.
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.
