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.

    These little nails are indispensable for making butter roses or pastry flowers. The turning motion makes creating the petals of the rose a breeze, and adds a higher level of presentation to any item you are decorating.

    I like the grooved handle on this flower nail because the other one I have doesn't have it and it makes it very slippery at times.

    I cannot say there was an issue with this nail, just that it is way too small to make a decent size flower with this. A small on, definitely!

    from Just Velvet Posted on

    Important basic tool in any decorators kit for flowers and roses. Good quality construction, feels like it will hold up over time and do a good job.

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    Perfect little flower nail. It's not often that I bake cakes but when I do, I usually put little buttercream flours on it. This flower nail is the perfect little size and quite heavy duty. Also has lasted in the dishwasher.

    This is the first flower nail I have ever bought, and I am pleasantly surprised! Though maybe a little small for my taste, this nail allows me to pipe my royal icing flowers with much more control.

    from Sugar and Spice Bakery Posted on

    This flower nail helps me create beautiful buttercream flowers. I can make small and big flowers depending on the size of the project. The price is great.

    A great nail. I think it is a little small for a bigger roses I like to do. I like the design or the nail having the ridges on the nail helps spin

    This ateco # 9 flower nail works really well for piping larger flowers. It is constructed well and cleans up easily. A very good purchase.

    Perfect flower nail. Ridges help to have an easy grip to spin while making flowers. Also good to hold small fondant pieces while shaping until they harden.

    Unfortunately, this flower nail item was already broken, bent where the head of the nail meets the nail when it arrived, and being that it was so cheap and we were swamped at an event, we just let it go. :(

    Thank you for your review! We are sorry this flower nail was broken. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you shortly to credit you for the faulty item.

    I've been using this as a baking pin although it is supposed to be a decorating tool. These help bring just as much heat to the middle of the cake, as it goes to the outside. Make sure you spray with cooking spray first!

    I have a couple of these at home that I use all the time for my larger roses! I even have used them for a heating core in my larger cakes. Works great!
