Buttercream Cake Decorating / Red Roses and Pink Swiss Dots


In this video I’m sharing a pretty little dotted Swiss and red buttercream Roses cake. So stay tuned. The full recipe for this incredible strawberry cake can be found here on wedding cakes for you channel and I will also post a link below the video for you. What makes this cake so good is the addition of freeze-dried strawberries and strawberry milk. A couple drops of pink brighten up the color of the cake. Once the cakes are cooled chop some fresh strawberries. Prepare a batch of Buttercream ahead of time, and a batch of whipped cream. This is two cups of heavy cream whipped with one teaspoon of vanilla and 1 cup of confectionery sugar. When the whipped cream holds its shape it’s ready. This is a 9-inch three layer cake. You can brush on simple syrup if you want to add a touch more flavor and/or moisture to your cakes. The link is below the video to the recipe for my simple syrup. When filling a cake with a soft filling and or fruit, pipe a dam of buttercream to seal the layers. Now frost your cakes with a thin layer of buttercream to seal in the crumbs before finishing with your final layer of buttercream. The cakes are then doweled for support of the top tier and a wooden dowel goes through the center of the cake. Enjoy the decorating of this sweet 13th birthday cake. The tips I used in this video are number 104 for the rose, number 5 for the little dots, number 4B for the border around the bases and number 125 for the ruffle. You can make a simple plaque like this one using the white chocolate modeling paste or gum paste. Food writers are an easy way to write a message and you can decorate your plaque with a tiny flower or a border. If you use buttercream refrigerate the plaque for 5 to 10 minutes then you can place it on your cake. Thank you so much for being here. I’m loving your comments.

  1. I just purchased some freeze-dried strawberries, dying to use them in a cake but concerned the pieces will end up CHEWY and Wierd because they don't have time to absorb any moisture
