Buttercream Roses

Roses are sooooooo overrated !!! That was my response when I first attempted Buttercream Roses. There were a lot of little things to remember - such as the way one has to hold the piping bag, the way pressure has to be applied so that the petals come out looking stunning like a blooming rose.

 

Now that I have spent a little more time on roses, I feel that roses are a testament to the skill of the cake decorator - because it focuses on the fundamentals such as proper pressure, consistency and smooth flow. Here is a video on how to make roses the right way, it looks way easier than it actually is!

 

This cake is the result of my first attempt at making roses - and in the process I discovered that making leaves (who knew??!!) is a lot of fun, just holding the bag and making tiny squiggles is addictive!

The cake here is a cookies n' creme cake with oreo cookies added to the batter just before the cake went into the oven - the creme made the cake very moist with lil' brown specks of oreo cookies throughout.

Congratulations Monisha, you got your roses right !!!! I totally agree with your opinion about the roses, and the leaves too. Roses are the first real icing flowers i learned, and i loved it. Your chocie of colors are fascinating.

Lovely roses! I've just started a basic cake decorating class and I've tried making buttercream roses and they look like heads of cabbage: jagged and frilly edges. Any advice?
