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.

    flower nail

    Simple tool like this makes cake decorating easier. I'm a self-taught baker and I now bake lots of cakes for family. This flower nail is way easier to use than cut-out parchment paper. At least for my experience.

    This tool helps my buttercream flowers come out great every time. The narrow end of the nail spins easily in one hand while you craft flowers with the other.

    This tool makes flower making much easier for me!

    A great flower nail. It's a little smaller than I prefer, but I found it's the only size offered from this company. It works great for small roses, but I tend to go for a bigger one over this one.

    A great flower nail for teaching cake classes

    These are very well made pins. The connection between the stem and the head appears strong and sturdy. They're good for making frosting flowers and can be used to help cake batters bake up evenly.

    Removing a pin after baking a cake with it

    Of the Ateco items I purchased, this is one that is good. This can't really be messed up. It is kind of small, so it's for small to medium flowers. Luckily it was not covered in sticky stickers unlike the rest of the Ateco items I purchased.

    You can not go wrong with Ateco. Great product. Less than half the price at other places. Buy a few so you always have extras.

    This flower nail is very easy to use - it spins really well and generally serves its purpose! The diameter is rather small, so it can be used for small or medium flowers only.
