Buttercream: Cake Decorating: Rosettes

Rosettes Birthday Cake Picture

Tip: 16

Consistency: Medium


This technique is achieved in one continous rotation. They are used for border decorations, for toping a cake to achieve a modern look, as hair in some character cakes, and for candleholders on top of a cake.

Place the tip slighlty above the cake and form a big star. Move the tip sideways but on top of the star and complete a rotation (if you start at 12:00 continue pressure and rotation until you reach 9:00, relieve pressure and continue until 12:00 to complete rotation). Lift tip away and towards center of rosette. VOILA!!!
