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!

The Shell is the most popular icing technique of all. It's the basis for many borders, fleurs de lis and more. Lift the tip only slightly when piping to avoid a bumpy look.

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.

Pipe dots for flower centers, faces, figure piping and border effects. When making large dots, lift the tip as you squeeze to allow icing to fill out completely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great cake to make for many occassions. Simple yet elegant at the same time. I've made it many times using a different color rose each time. It is always a hit!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I rated this cake a "Medium", because there is no level between "Somewhat easy" & "Medium." This cake requires patience, you cannot rush it. I made a variation for a backyard wedding party. I used a 1/4 sheet & topped it with a heart shaped cake (for the 1st anniversary, of course!). The heart cake had a dozen buttercream pink roses, framed by leaves. The 1/4 sheet had 140 fingertip roses (made using tip #102), a shell border at the bottom of both layers, & dots to creat a scallop frame around each fingertip rose which created a border on the top of the 1/4 sheet. You can do this if you are comfortable with your roses, & think of all the practice you'll get! Remember, patience is key! Have fun with it!
