Piping Buttercream Roses

Hey everyone!

I’ve always admired and wanted to try piping flowers out of buttercream! I am not a big fan of fondant decorating but I am of buttercream and other yummy things. They aren’t perfect and it was a little harder than I thought but I think they still came out rather nice. The main challengeΒ is getting the consistency of the icing right as it softens even more in between your hands when piping them, and my hands aren’t the steadiest either. I added glitter because I thought there was a big gap but I actually hate this glitter as it is so chunky and not reflective and pretty like other glitters I have used in the past. So I wish I didn’t add it but it’s there.

I thought it would be fun to share some photos of my roses. These are completely unedited photos and I love how bright the colours are, especially the pink. The cake is chocolate cake and chocolate buttercream. This is actually one of my all time favourite chocolate cake recipes too, let me know if you’d be interested in seeing the recipe.


Thanks for reading. I am always posting my food creations on Instagram so follow me @annanna123 for yummy photos on your insta feed (and cute photos of my dog) :P.
