How to Pipe a Rose with Buttercream Frosting

How to Pipe a Rose with Buttercream Frosting

Use these simple steps to professionally add a buttercream rose. You'll need a spatula, rose tips, a leaf tip, couplers, a flower nail, a rubber spatula, and piping bags. Begin by squeezing cream onto the flower nail in a circular motion, creating a lump with a tip on it. To create the layers of a rose, squeeze cream in an short arch motion and continue rotating the rose until you have the desired amount of layers, or petals.

Customer questions about this product

Can my reusable canvas pastry bag be modified to fit different couplers and tips?
No, unfortunately due to the sewed seam, this bag cannot be cut to accommodate different tips and couplers. This bag cannot be used with couplers, as the seam interferes with it sealing properly and does not offer a secure fit for steady decorating. To review reusable bags, which can be cut, and their compatible couplers and tips check out our chart, Companion Coupler, Bags, and Tips Guide.

    bag Canvas pastry great large bags piping tips easy frosting

    Useless to me. This is a very well constructed pastry bag and is very high quality. But every adaptor i currently own will not allow me to screw the tube holder down (the end seam is too thick). I even purchased like 5 different size adaptors hoping one would work. But to no avail. But im just disappointed. I dont like the disposable bags or the plastic lined fabric ones. Plus if i cut this bag it would start to fray at the end that was cut. So i guess this will be in a storage box in one of my storage rooms.

    from Todd's Kitchen of Comfort Food Posted on

    This is a very well made ateco 18" canvas piping bag. It is very good for piping dams, or completing large orders and holds up to everyday use.

    This is a nice, large sized pastry bag that will surely hold up well over time. Good cloth and plastic, with solid stitching. I recommend it.

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    I use a lot of pastry bags, and really love these heavy duty canvas ones by Ateco. They are very durable, hold a lot of icing at this 18" size, and are comfortable to hold for extended periods of time. I use these for piping ruffles and roses on my cakes, as well as for doing buttercream tops on my cupcakes. They wash up well, and overall are a great piping bag.

    from Jennie's Cake Creations Posted on

    This Canvas Pastry Bag is perfect for anything. You can use it for Cookies. Cakes, ice Cream decoration, Whipping cream. Buy few more extra to use same time with different colors. So you don't have to wash. Heavy duty bag for a lifetime to use. 5 Stars.

    At first I was shocked how large the piping hole is. I mean huge! (I could fit my thumb through it with room to spare.) Fortunately I had ordered a large open start piping tube to go along with it. I was able to accomplish my task with the bag and tube, but I need a large coupler. Don't forget to order one with this bag. Also, I wasn't expecting a coating-less bag. But it held up to a buttercream, so we'll give it a go.

    from Sea Level Bakery + Coffee Posted on

    This bag is how it is described, I was just expecting it to be coated so the liquid/sugary/stickiness doesn't seem through when I use it for fresh whipped cream. It is a nice big size, I just ordered the wrong type bag. This bag does work well with all of our tips.

    from Ode To Food & Drinks Posted on

    This is a good bag for larger "stiff" frostings. They are not very friendly when it comes to clean up though, the canvas is very sticky and the whole is rather large.

    from Tripps Primal Farm and Kafé Posted on

    I must say that this is my favorite piping bag by far. It is so convenient. I think this one is great for large quantities of cupcakes and cakes. Highly recommended.

    from The Tea Room Posted on

    we ordered the pastry bag and i wasn't is it will be good enough to use. since we received them i am putting them in a good use. i wash them after each use . i like it .

    from Tina's Basket Posted on

    You can't go wrong with Ateco brand products. I love the size for piping cupcakes and cakes. It is easy to hand wash and dry.

    from Sweet Sunny's Posted on

    A great staple! I couldnt make it through the day without these at our bakery! I have used many different types of pastry bags over the years and have tried different materials but you just cannot beat the canvas. I used to use the cheap plastic disposable bags but I never got the comfort or ease of use of the old trusty canvas bag. They seem to clean so much easier than the typical plastic bags as well and withstand the heat much better without breaking down. Destined to become a staple the first time its used

    from Sugarbelles Posted on

    I recommend this bag for pastry because it supports good pressure and easy to wash, the material is suitable for multiple uses and I think that is your best choice ,

    from √°guila bakery Posted on

    This canvas pastry bag is perfect for hot applications. It is very sturdy and is one of the most used items in our kitchen on a daily basis.

    from Trivits Urban, LLC Posted on

    Just like the 16" these are great for an assortment of uses in the kitchen. We also used these for our mashed potatoes, whipped cream, guacamole, sour cream, butter, and a few other things to jazz up our dishes.

    from The Meyersville inn Posted on

    Great pastry bag that can be reused over and over again. Can be easily washed, turn inside out. To save money from purchasing plastic disposable for everything buy one of these instead, Eco friendly.

    Posted on

    Very durable and easy to clean. We really like this product and will continue to purchase this brand. We have found that it really holds up to everyday use.

    from Hope Valley Diner and Catering Posted on

    This is a great size for holding lots of frosting/filling etc. Unfortunately because of the nature of canvas if you have a shortening & butter frosting the grease seeps through the bag making it slippery and unpleasant. I made the mistake of filling it with an all shortening buttercream when decorating a dummy cake and it was less than enjoyable feeling. I recommend the disposable pastry bags made by Ateco for high fat frostings, but this is a great tool to have for other types of creams. Love that i can wash it, dry it, and store it again for another use.

    Great pastry bag. Durable, easy to clean. We use for tartar sauce for crab cakes and to fill mashed potatoes on Sheppard's pie. Be careful hen using hot item in this bag as it is jot heatproof and will burn your hands.

    from Cafe Marty Posted on

    The Ateco Canvas Pastry bags are made to last. Very thick canvas material, heavy duty seams. The only thing you need have to keep in mind is the size of the tip.

    Posted on

    This bag is perfect for at home cupcake decorating. Take a lot of icing in so you don't have to fill so frequently is reusable and washes well. The canvas material make it perfect to hold the bag without slipping and give you more control of it

    Posted on

    This extra large bag was great for frosting a very large batch of cupcakes. Because of the fabric I could not do marshmallow frosting but the buttercream worked great! Would recommend.

    Posted on

    Sturdy, washable, durable... what else could you ask for in a pastry bag? Just keep in mind that this is canvas and somewhat porous so if you have a dense filling that requires a lot of pressure, you may get some seep-through on the exterior. However, for icing, mashed potatoes and similar consistencies, this is the way to go.

    from October Catering Posted on

    This makes decorating so much easier and not all of us can be Martha Stewart. It holds a lot of frosting, pipes very well, has universal tips and even washes out easily. Love it

    from Elements Posted on

    This bag is better fitted for my hands and easy to control the flow. I really like the feel of this bag than a regular plastic one. Really recommend

    Posted on

    i used to buy disposabale but the tough canvas squeezes better and doens brake as easy. its also much cheaper in the long run. no more cream all over the place from busts

    from home use Posted on

    This pastry bag has a much better hand feel tha some of the plastic ones. It also feels heavy duty. For projects where I'm worried about scent transfer, I might still use disposables.

    from Southern Girl Soapery Posted on

    I like to decorate cupcakes, and the 18" pastry bag is a good size for me. The bottom opening is large enough for the large tip adapter. Unfortunately, frosting can soak into and through the canvas, and it's difficult to be sure the canvas is thoroughly clean when I'm washing it. While it works for now, next time I will try a pastry bag made from a different material.

    Posted on

    Thanks for your review! If your want an easy to clean bag made from a different material, check out the Ateco 3318 18in. Plastic Pastry Bag. Another way to ensure that you have a clean bag every time is by using a disposable bag, like the Ateco 4718 18in. Disposable Pastry Bag.

    this canvas pastry bag is well made bag . it will stand up to any pastry tube. easy to use and clean up at a very loe buy.

    from nitas place Posted on

    This is a good bag, and it's got plenty of room for a fair amount of filling. It cleans up well, and doesn't leak. It's strong enough to pipe stiff batter, like for cookies, too, without bulging or ripping, like some plastic bags. Unfortunately, it does not take all sizes of couplers or tips. It only takes the jumbo tips and couplers, so no compatibility with the frosting tips I bought. I'd say good for piping cookies or eclairs, etc, but not for frosting or fine work, since the bits won't fit anyway. SUGGESTION to Site: Clearly mark all bags, liners, tips and couplers as being Small, Medium, or Large, so we can know up front if they'll fit together. I've placed two orders so far, trying to match up, but still have tips that fit nothing else.

    This piping bag is so durable and it can be used to pipe on anything. It can stand up to so many different substances. I use it to pipe on my key lime pies.

    Posted on

    Though this bag doesn't offer the decorating potential of the smaller bags, it is still absolutely perfect for making roses or other decorative art! These also come at a great price!

    from The Pie Kitchen Posted on

    i use this ateco 3118 18 eanch canvas decorating bag to decorate ice seem that i prepare by my self at home, this is very efficient way to me do this work

    These Ateco piping bags are great because they can withstand heat and make piping hot potatoes easy! They can easily be turned inside out and washed to be used again!

    Posted on

    Great product, very durable and useful for the kitchen. Pipes everything mash potatoes, mousse, butter, and easy to clean as well because it is made of canvas.

    from AMAYA LLC Posted on

    This is great bag for frosting cupcakes! It is really sturdy and well made. It washes really well and fits my large piping tips. Definitely a good purchase!

    Posted on

    This is an excellent bag- it's durable and sturdy, and the coating makes cleaning it as breezy as is possible with a reusable bag. Plus, it's not SO sturdy that it's inflexible.

    from Bell and Whistle Posted on

    These are great decorating bags! They work well and clean up very easily. I was worried at first they I wouldn't need such a large bag but it works well with macarons and for fillings.
