Help matching roses...

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone...I need to make these roses for an anniversary cake. They have to be made from butter cream. I'm not very hopeful about matching the shape so I'm looking for pointers there. I also need help coming up with the color. I see a lot of beautiful roses on cakes here, unfortunately none of them are mine icon_redface.gif. Any help/suggestions on matching these roses?

hi,
just a couple of ideas... you can pipe the buttercream roses in a yellow, put them on parchment and in the freezer quick. They will harden and then you can take them out and airbrush the peach color of try to paint them with diluted food color if you don't have an airbrush. Another thing you may want to think of is actually piping the image right onto the cake with buttercream, it would be more 2-d but that is probably how you can match the roses exactly. good luck!

I would do them in Royal icing or you could use buttercream .... Color your icing Buttercup Yellow and then get you a lite brown powder dust and once they are dry I would dust the outer edges and the inside with the lite brown powder... Probly a dry I would not use the vodka method.... just enough to give it that brown look you seen in the photo...

you could also put a stripe of color in your pastry bag to get a mixed effect.

Thank you ladies! I'm going to start experimenting! Do you think I can get that natural shape using tip #104 or does anyone recommend a different tip?

Take a look at Kathy F's white chocolate roses at

Maybe make them in a pale yellow and use petal dust on the edges in a pink for that look.

Thanks for all the help! I'm going to try tip 98 too and see how it does. Kathy's choc. roses are beautiful! These have to be made of butter cream for $ reasons--they didn't want to pay any extra for gumpast/fondant/candy clay/silk/real. I'll let everyone know how they turn out.

I personally think that tip 97 is easier to make roses with then the 104..

someone suggested to me to use tip 116, it's a bigger version of 97. It is used with the big coupler, so you'd get some big roses! The trouble is, I can't find it locally to buy. (I have the Wilton decorating tip page open right now)
