This tutorial will show you how to make roses out of frosting. There are many different ways to create roses, but I feel that this is one of the easiest and most basic methods, and produces a nice large flower (final result pictured above). You can use any buttercream recipe to make these flowers, or a medium-consistency royal icing recipe will also work. Buttercream recipes will harden in the refrigerator or freezer but become soft again at room temperature, while royal icing recipes will harden completely and can be stored at room temperature indefinitely. To make royal icing, view my tutorial on making royal icing.

To make frosting roses you will need:

  • 1 batch of frosting
  • a pastry bag fitted with a coupler
  • a large rose tip
  • a rose nail
  • small squares of wax paper
