How to Make Easy Frosting Roses (Video)
This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.
Frosting Roses are gorgeous on cakes or cupcakes. I’ll let you in on a little secret; they are ridiculously quick and simple to make. You’ll be a pro in no time! If you need a last minute (super easy) dessert idea for Mother’s day or any special occasion, try these cupcakes! We baked the cupcakes, whipped the frosting, filmed, edited and posted all in one day.
That’s almost live (ohh Live TV, now that’s a scary notion, but who knows it may just be the next big social networking thing, but I still think it’s scary). I hope you enjoy this video.

I used the Wilton 2D Decorating tip to make the roses.

P.S. What kind of videos would you like to see in the future? Quick How – To’s? Maybe the more “intimidating ” Russian and Ukrainian recipes? I want to hear from you!!

can i make these a day ahead and keep them in the frig? How long will they stay fresh?
Hi Phylllis, yes that would work to pipe the roses and then refrigerate. They will last for several days. I would recommend covering when refrigerating so they don’t absorb any food smells from the fridge.
Natasha, I want to make your Tres Leches cake the night before my friend’s babyshower. I want to cover it with this frosting roses. Can i cover it in roses when it’s ready the night before and put in the fridge or should i wait to frost it in the morning before the shower? Thanks
P.S love your recipes, can’t go wrong with any of them
Hi Cristina, thank you for that amazing compliment! 🙂 That cake is very moist so it is a little challenging to make roses or any kind of decor which is why I keep it simple. You would need a different frosting (such as our cupcake frosting) than what I have on the tres leches cake since whipped cream isn’t really stable enough to keep frosting roses looking awesome without falling off the cake. The cupcake frosting would probably work either the night before or day of. The whipped cream frosting however is a really great compliment to this cake because it is so light and the cake does not become overly sweet which is why I don’t stray from it.
Did you use the frosting that you provided a link for in this video? Or was it buttercream frosting? The roses look so perfect.
I used frosting from the link in the video :).
does this frosting recipe linked make enough to frost a cake covered in roses
9 in diam. 1-2 inches high each and two layers.
Yes; it is enough to cover a cake 🙂
Thank you so much for putting this out there, I watched so many tutorials and they were all so difficult and daunting or time consuming. I was seriously starting to stress these roses because my niec wants rose bouquets at her sweet 16 ball and I hadnt yet found a way to make them pretty! Its only 2 weeks before her ball and finally thanks to your tutorial I can confidently make her bouquets thank you so much.

I just want to say I loved the rose tutorial, especially your son praying!! Bless God! I recently found your recipe for Fresh Strawberry Layered cake and I have to tell you it was FABULOUS!! Thanks so much for helping others be a success in the kitchen!! God Bless YOU!
Awww thank you so much. He’s my sweetheart. He’s all sugar and such a blessing to us. God bless you as well and I’m so glad you enjoy the blog and recipes 🙂
If I were to do roses all over a cake should I spread frosting on it first?
It’s not necessary if you keep the roses really close together. You can put on a thin layer to ensure you don’t have any gaps.
Thanks natasha for having this website 😉 you are an amazing cook
You’re welcome and thank you for your sweet comment 🙂
Natasha, loved the video! Your son is too cute 🙂 Once again, thanks for all you do – you are awesome! :))
Thanks Luba. You’re so sweet!
The cupcakes look gorgeous!! Do you have a good recipe for sushi?
I do, but I haven’t made sushi for awhile. I guess I’ll have to break out the old recipe. It’s pretty easy to make. Oh goodness, now I’m craving sushi. Thanks. Thanks alot. 😉
Goodness your son is too cute.. My little boy after watching this video with me is jumping up and down and asking for a cupcake.
Can’t believe how easy it looks… And please post the intimidating russian/ukraine videos as well. And maybe some sushi ones if you can?
That’s adorable 🙂 Sorry I tempted him with a cupcake; I guess I should include a warning that the video is “craving inducing” lol
This tutorial was awesome! So easy! I have never frosted a cupcake and was genuinely terrified of it! Now I’m less scared and will try!!!
Thank you Olena :).
What a great video. You made it look so easy and do-able, thank you! And your son is so precious 🙂

Thank you so much for the cool tutorial! How about a recipe/tutorial on how to make homemade sausage, featured in one of your recent posts?
That would be a cool video to do. Thanks for the idea!
Wonderful tutorial! I was blessed to see your little one pray. We have the kids pray over all our meals also. Keep up the good work!!

Hi, how about a tutorial on how to fold napkins nicely? Like that napkin folded into a rose shown at the end of this video?
Another video idea would be good to show how to hold and use a knife when dicing and slicing. I have learned a while back (how to use and protect my fingers when using a knife), but I see people holding that knife awkwardly, and just wince every time the sharp end is dangerously used close to fingers.
Napkins? Sure!! It was very easy and I have a few more techniques up my sleeve. I love the idea for knife techniques. Thanks Oksana!
