How to Make Easy Frosting Roses (Video)

Frosting Roses are gorgeous on cakes or cupcakes. They are ridiculously quick and simple to make. You'll be a pro in no time!

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.

Watch Frosting Roses How-To Video:

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

Frosting Roses are gorgeous on cakes or cupcakes. They are ridiculously quick and simple to make. You'll be a pro in no time!

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!!

      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. Reply

    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 Reply

      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. Reply

    Natasha,
    Did you use the frosting that you provided a link for in this video? Or was it buttercream frosting? The roses look so perfect. Reply

    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. Reply

    If I were to do roses all over a cake should I spread frosting on it first? Reply

      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. Reply

    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. Reply

      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! Reply
