How to Pipe a Rose with Buttercream Frosting

Ever wonder how to professionally decorate your cake? Watch this short video and learn how to style up your next cake with a classic buttercream rose.

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.

Ateco Piping Bags, Short Spatulas and Pastry Tubes

Looking for just the right tools to decorate your cakes with? Try the Ateco piping bags, short spatulas, and pastry tubes! These tools will help you create weaves, ribbons, scalloped edges, and more that will leave customers impressed every time.

Hi, this is Julie Bashore from the Sugar Arts Institute. Let’s have fun with some of the Ateco piping tips. Working with their disposable piping bags that come on a roll, they tear off really easily, I like to work with the smaller 12” bags but they also have 18”. Working with a coupler, remove the nut from the base of the coupler and place the base in the bag as tightly as you possibly can. Working with a pair of scissors, above the screw marks, just cut the edge of the bag and remove that. And then you’re going to choose the piping tube that you’d like to work with, place it on the top of the coupler, and screw it down firmly. This is a piping bag stand; it’s very convenient, especially if you’re piping alone or you don’t want to interrupt anyone to fill the bags, it holds the bags really well and you can slip your icing in there. This is the short-ended Ateco spatula which is quite wide so it’s really convenient for picking up the buttercream. Pull the bag up, place it on the table, and spread the buttercream down to the end. And then of course it’s important not to forget to burp the bag. This piping tip that I’m using is a ruffling pipe piping tip, and it’s absolutely amazing how quickly it works. Have a look, come in close. Doesn’t that give an awesome ruffle? Let’s work with another tip. This is the shell tip; don’t forget to burp your bag. This is great for a border; in fact, I sometimes use it on the edge of my ruffle. It gives a really nice shell design. The tip itself is curved so it gives a nice puffy shell appearance to it. Ateco has a new set that they’ve brought out: polycarbonate plastic piping tips, they are large tips, very strong and very precise in the edging. This one is a basket weave design; it really makes an awesome border. Place the bag over the holder, again, don’t forget to push the butter cream all the way to the edge and burp the bag. It has two edges, a flat edge and a scalloped edge so this makes a great ribbon design; you can also wiggle it or make just a ribbon and also wiggle this. Flip it over and wiggle. Great for basket weave.

    These bags are huge and made of thick quality plastic!!! I suggest this size if you are making big batches of filling/icing/batter. This roll will last you a while.

    Getting ready to order another set of these sturdy, well-made pastry bags! I could not be more pleased with this product. No side blow-outs or leaks. Used for frosting hundreds of cupcakes, these disposable pastry bags are life-savers!

    from Missy, Brown Cow Bakery Posted on

    These bags are nice and large. They are convenient to use and study. We have not ever had one spring a leak. Highly recommend these bags for your decorating needs!

    from Whitehall School District Posted on

    These 18" disposable pastry bags make cake decorating so much more fun since the cleanup is so much easier! The bags are well constructed and I have never had a seam bust out, and the 18" size is perfect to give you enough capacity without being hard to handle.

    We've used this product since opening the bakery. These larger bags are great for big projects. They told a lot of frosting too.. I would definitely recommend this product.

    I was unable to find pastry bags in this size in my local stores. I had to keep refilling a smaller bag. Great price too.

    These are the only piping bags that I use! Strong, separate easily, the perfect length to hold a little over a dozen cupcakes worth of frosting.

    from Lulu's Sugar Shoppe Posted on

    These bags are easy to dispense. The size is great for all of my needs. These bags are a much greater value than what I have been able to purchase locally.

    I love these bags! They are the perfect size for frosting 1-2 dozen cupcakes. They are strong too-have never had one burst even with thicker frosting. And they have an almost sticky, grippy texture on the outside that helps keep the bag twisted tightly to itself while you're piping.

    These bags are perfect for piping icing on my cakes and cupcakes. Easy clean up is always a plus. The size of the bag is perfect!

    from Sweets By Margo Posted on

    The Clear Disposable Pastry bags work great ! easy to use and very durable. we find that with a good wash we can use this bag more then one time.

    from The Chatter Box Food truck Posted on

    The 18" pastry bag met and exceeded my expectations! I used them to pipe my stiff brownie mix into cupcakes. No leakage and held the entire batch in 1 bag! Great product!

    These bags are perfect! I use these for piping my cupcakes and each bag is large enough where i can pipe almost a dozen cupcakes.

    from Crave Sweets Posted on

    very strong bags just the right size for what i need ships quickly will order these bags again very good value for the price strong and durable

    from Emmas Cakes Posted on

    Use these for icing. Cheap and works great for just a few hours before disposing. Never had problems with tears or rips. Will purchase again.

    I bought these bags to use with Webstaurant’s recommended Ateco large plastic coupler. These 18” bags are just big enough that I won’t have to refill often to frost a batch of cupcakes, but don’t seem too bulky that it would be difficult to manage for a home baker. I used to buy the plastic lined bags, but I just didn’t have the patience for the clean-up.

    We love these icing bags! They are a great weight and hold up to our buttercream really good! Excellent product for an excellent price! Thanks!

    from Bake Us Happy Posted on

    i really like the large size of these bags. i've purchased the smaller sizes in the past and theyre not nearly as useful. these ateco bags are also very thick and sturdy so they stand up to rough or heavy use no problem.

    Great! Nice and sturdy pastry bags. A great size (not too big and unwieldy, not too small and needing constant refilling). Love having a ready to go roll at my disposal.
