Easy to Make Icing Roses


Hi, It’s Jill. Today I am going to show you how to make a rose on a CHOPSTICK! It’s so simple, you are going to be amazed. Before we get started, let me show you the supplies we need to make the rose cake. You can access my websites by going to SweetArtFactory.com for supplies and recipes. You will need the decorator frosting I use. You will find the recipe below or go to our website. Find WonderCream frosting, it is just three ingredients. It makes this great decorator frosting to frost cakes and make roses. The three colors I am using today are leaf green, soft pink, and bright white. The bright white helps give your frosting a super white color that is perfect when adding new colors. You will need two decorating tips, one is the 104 Rose Tip. The other one is the 352 tip, which makes rose leaves. You will need decorator bags. i use the disposable bags as they can be kept in the refrigerator to use again. I put the leaf green into my bag with a 352 tip to make my rose leaves. I did the same thing for our roses. Here I have the soft pink with a 104 tip ready to make my roses. Use a rubber band to secure the frosting into the bags. I don’t fill my frosting to the top, so you aren’t working to push all that frosting out a small tip. Also, you need a chopstick. The traditional way to make roses is to make them on a rose nail, but I found an easier way. On a rose tip, there is a wider end and and a narrow end. You want the fatter wider end to be pointed down and the thin end on top. The thin end is what makes the top of the rose petal. You have to get used to rolling the chopstick in your fingers. First, twirl the chopstick as you pipe a circle around the top of the stick to make the rose bud center. Now, you are going to make your first petal by making a rainbow or upsidedown U. Then do this again. Practice makes perfect. And then a third one. This makes your first row. Now, you can make your rose as big as you want. Here I make 5 small petals to make the next row. Then I am going to make it a little bigger by adding seven small petals. Put a small dobble of frosting where you are going to plant your rose. Using a small scissors, slide the scissors up the stick and lift off the rose. Lay on top of the cake. There you have a beautiful rose. You can make lots of roses, but for time sake, I am going to continue decorating the cake. To make a small rose bud, just squeeze a little frosting as you move forward and then back. Just go up and down to make small rose buds To make a thicker rose bud, just go over the top of the lower part of the rose bud and then back to the middle. Using the leaf tip, look for the pointed part of the tip. This is the pointed part you stick below the rose. Pipe and then pull out to make a leaf. You can shake your hand a little to give it more definition to the leaf. With the left over frosting you can decorate around the cake. Here am making swirls. Make long wide U’s to make a beautiful border. Now to finish the cake I am making rose buds. Now you have some room to write a message, like Happy Birthday See how simple it is to make a rose using a chopstick!

  1. This is the Wilton method of making a rose, even the buds are Wiltons method, and a nail is really not that much money and works so much better than a square stick…..if it works for you then great…but new or different it is not.

  2. you know it would help if all the words you added to the video werent in the way of what you are trying to show people. you cant see you making the rose buds at all. thanks to bad editing..

  3. I get so tired of seeing plastic crap on cakes instead of roses. Everything on a cake is supposed to be EDIBLE !

  4. I quickly looked this up for a cake today, and this video was the best one I found! I only had to practice once before I got one suitable for the cake, and I'm thrilled! Thank you so much for this video!

  5. worst video demo I have ever seen and tried to watch, poor quality and you do things not allowing viewers to see what you are doing.

  6. Well, thank you very much for your video, but i think you need a pro videographer because your video was so blurry and i don't think anybody can see what you are doing 🙁

  7. I have a lot it problem with the royal icing its always to hard or to soft I can never make the rose well you have to havhavea trick isno so easy for meexplain that p,ease . thanks

  8. When you are making the bud roses, we can’t see it. You also say see how easy or simple it is? Well it’s not simple for us because we can’t see what you are doing. Your camera angle should show from the top. This has not helped me at all.

  9. You made it so easy..looks awesomely simple yet beau uuuuutiful decoration..u r an expert…please make sure u show d cake from all angels… especially from d top…

  10. Cookie Gift Can Queen on Etsy sells high ratio sweetex shortening 32oz for home bakers. Just wanted to share with other home makers & bakers like Me😀

  11. I agree with the person before me-it would have been nice to have been able to see what you were actually doing! Are you essentially using the chopstick (or skewer as was used in another similar video) as the “base” of the rose that you would normally make on a flower nail, instead of using a #12 tip to pipe a base that is in height 1 1/2 times the width of the rose tip (? 104)?

  12. my OCD went nuts over the very last rose bud not being a space away from the first one… I would have had to go and fill in all the spaces after that lol also, if you wanna make a multi tonal rose, do a thin line of food coloring Dow. the side of the bag before you put the frosting in, it's beautiful.. I'm doing acid green and black roses on my brother's oogie boogie birthday cake 🙂 happy baking!

  13. Why do so many of you feel the need to keep saying the same thing that's already been said over and over about the camera placement, especially since she has already addressed it numerous times? She's an intelligent woman, so I think she got it the first time. Geez, such negative complainers!

  14. Cant see was so excited. You should use a tripod on your counter and be over your cake for tutorials. Ty for it but i will find another one.

  15. I love the video. My only critic would be your focus on the camera. Seeing the flowers and pedals on the cake as well as the other design was blurry and hard to see. Thanks tho.

  16. I can't see what you're doing and I can't hear you over the music. The music doesn't even make sense for this video.

  17. Very white blown background and the pink was ultra bright..couldn’t see the top of the cake either..I’m sure it was pretty..need a better view over all.
