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.

    I bought 15 of these, not to use for buttercream roses, but to actually bake with! We use them in my cake shop to better evenly bake sheet cakes and larger pan sizes. Very pleased with these, I like the texture, which makes it easier to hold.

    I love flowers on cake and this nail is a must when piping them. For the price, you can afford to buy 4 or 5 and practice perfecting your work. The handle is ridge and feels great. The size is perfect for small and large flowers.

    Flower nail (the nail part) rusted. The round platform is too small; great if you need to make small roses or flowers for cupcakes but not for cakes.

    Thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear that you've been having trouble with rust on the flower nail. To avoid rusting, we recommend hand washing this item.

    The Ateco flower nail is a great quality. I feel as if they are less prone to rust, which shows their quality. I usually use them for roses, and it makes constructing a rose so much easier because you can turn the nail with your finger and see each angle of your flower. Very happy with this product.

    This is the first flower nail I have purchased but it seems to be very flimsy. These have been getting bent just kicking around in my equipment drawer.

    from NewLeaf Posted on

    this flower nail is metal, and easier to hold than plastic ones because of the thread. am planning on ordering more so i can use them as heating cores so cakes bake faster in the center and have less of a dome!

    This is a fantastic flower nail! It has great grip on it so your fingers dont slip while piping roses and the price is amazing , it was also shipped super fast as well! Definitely recommend.

    These flower nails are great for making all kinds of flowers!

    Great product! I love the fact that it has a very strong grip, so it's easier to turn while making flowers. However, the flat surface is too small so it's better to work with small to medium size flowers.

    Great price orthis flower nail. I was a little disappointed that is rusted a bit. I am still able to use it for my flowers and as heating cores for my cakes.

    I really enjoy this flower nail because it has an excellent grip on it; This allows for a smooth twisting action while piping the flower design. The nail "head" itself is large and can accommodate a large flower.

    This very sturdy flower nail is perfect for detailed flower making. In addition, we use them in the middle of cakes to help bake more evenly. Great product.

    These flower nails are built to last. They have a grooved stem which really grips your fingers as you slowly turn the nail. This is a huge help when making a lot of flowers quickly!

    This piping nail is great for practicing butter cream flowers. I use it all the time and the grooves are great for spinning it. Lets you have a nice grip and gives you better control!

    Our bakers have enjoyed using these flower nails. They are made from quality materials and have stood up to hundreds of washings without rusting or bending.

    These are great little nails. I got a few extra Ateco 909 1 1/4" Flower Nail #9 (August Thomsen) for when I have extra help at the shop. Very pleased with the size and price of them.

    flowers, nail not used to make leaves

    The Ateco 1 1/4" Flower Nail is very sturdy. I ordered two and they punched right through the cardboard box and into my hand with no ill effect on the nail. :~)

    Who would of thought I would start making roses for our cakes... bought this to try it first (did not know if I could get the hang of making these flowers), the only down side is that I should of bought more.

    I use this product for making buttercream flowers and also place it in the batter to help my cakes bake evenly. It's a quality product that works well!

    The most used size for piping flowers for most decorators. I use this nail to make roses to violets. Nice and flat and the perfect size to allow for easy spinning.

    from Countryside Cakes Posted on

    This is a good little hand tool to have when practicing to make flowers for cake decorating. It is easy to hold and spin directly in your hand.

    The flower nails are great for making daises and other flat flowers. We attach a small parchment square to the nail with icing then remove it to the freezer for easy transporting to the cake. The nail also doubles as a tool to make more even cakes by placing it upside down in a large cake pan to help conduct heat.

    from baked By Dan Posted on

    Making butter cream roses is just about impossible without a flower nail just like this one. The flower nail is so helpful with this task.

    This flower nail will improve your buttercream flowers by 100%, the help of the spinning is great to get an all around beautiful buttercream flower.

    Flower made with flower nail

    These were bought to use in my cake pans to keep cake level while cooking. Easy to use, easy to clean. Want rust and were a very good price.

    from Lei Lei's Cuisine Posted on

    This is a great flower nail. This is NOT plastic. Metal nails for making flowers are more durable and last longer ensuring good support to make flowers for cakes.

    from Tristan's Posted on

    I love useing these when im making rose buds! Some people just use a tooth pick or what ever they can find. But its so much easier to hold onto the nail while your piping.

    The nail is perfect for creating intricate frosting flowers. The pin rolls smoothly between your thumb and forefinger to allow for contant motion to get even frosting strokes.

    from Queen City Cupcakes Posted on

    This is a great rose nail. It is the perfect size to make medium to large flowers (I primarily use it for roses) but other flowers can be done.

    I purchased several of these nails. I use them to bake larger cakes 10" and up for even baking. I use 2 for the 10" and add 1-2 more for every 2" increment of pans. The center bakes great every time.
