One of my favorite designs to pipe onto a cupcake is the frosting rose. It’s beautiful, versatile, and always makes a stunning presentation. Not too long ago, I posted my fresh orange cake and orange curd frosting recipe, and I decorated the cupcakes using frosting roses because this was the exact recipe and design I used for a friend’s daughter’s birthday cake recently and it just felt like the right thing to do. Isn’t it so pretty?
I had a few requests for a tutorial on piping these realistic buttercream roses, so I took a little extra frosting and some spare cupcakes and made you a video! It’s easier to explain that way and you can see the angles. If you have any questions though, please feel free to comment below and I’ll answer as best I can. Maybe one day when I get the hang of Periscope we can have a live tutorial!
I hope you enjoy this frosting tutorial and share pictures of your beautiful cupcakes with me!
+List of Materials:
- Disposable piping bags
- Wilton 2D jumbo piping tip
- 2 different gel colors in shades complimentary to your frosting (I used pinks since my frosting had a light orange hue)
