Finish your petit fours or cupcakes with one pretty rosebud. Made in buttercream, this flat flower can be piped directly on a cake in your favorite colors. Or make them ahead using royal icing. On cakes, use the rosebud as an accent or in a floral spray bouquet.
Try some fun color combinations: yellow petals with yellow or blue centers, violet or blue petals with yellow centers and peach petals with orange centers. Highlight centers with Wilton Cake Sparkles, or colored sugars.
This 5-petal springtime flower, most commonly seen in white or soft pink, is virtually the
same petal shape as the wild rose, but uses a smaller tip creating a petite flower. The
dot stamen are typically positioned like the holes in a 5-hole button. Dry them on flower
formers for a more natural look.
