How to make rose swirl on cupcakes???

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I have been looking all over the internet and can't seem to figure out how to make the rose swirl effect on cupcakes. I have used tip 1M but that doesn't look like a rose. Any advise on how to get the rose effect and direction on how to do so would be much appreciated. Thanks!

It's super-easy! icon_smile.gif

Use your 1M tip on a 90 degree angle, that's fine...BUT instead of starting from the outside edge and piping all the way in and upwards towards the centre, you start from the middle and pipe around all the way around to the outside edge. That gives it a rose-look.

I did them for Valentine's day and they looked like this pic I used as inspiration, not sure whose these are icon_confused.gif ...

If you're more of a visual learner like me, here's a great Youtube video and a link to a previous thread with pics!

I use a 2D tip and spiral from the inside out. They turn out beautiful and so elegant that no one believes how easy it is!

Have fun!

Do you pipe in one continuous motion or one petal at a time which sounds very time-consuming?

I just bought this tip now I can't wait to try this. Unfortunately I made 5 dozen cupcakes and frosted them before seeing this thread so I guess I'll have to wait! I certainly don't need any more cupcakes right now! lol (I didn't make 5 dozen for us, it was for a picnic but I have some leftovers.)

Thanks for posting!

Antonia74, your cuppies are beautiful icon_smile.gif Thanks for starting this thread, Meredith1851. I've always wondered how they achieve that beautiful rose look.

Just to clarify what I'd said....that pic isn't mine, I used it for inspiration.
I've since found the member it belongs to, it's by Jammjenks! icon_smile.gif

One continuous spiral.

Sorry for the mistake, Antonia74...I must have been reading too fast. I can see why you were so impressed by the cuppies by Jammjenks icon_smile.gif

If you haven't made them before and you just want to practice the technique, like I did, you can draw some circles (~2 1/2 inches) in wax paper and practice until you get it. But it is really straightforward and easy and you get beautiful results from a simple swirl just by starting from the center, I was amazed.

Good luck!

Ooh! Good idea! I have some leftover frosting in the freezer that I can play with too! Thanks for the tip. icon_smile.gif

If you want to jazz your cupcake roses, pipe a rosette like they have said, however only go around two times, then pipe large petals using tip 125 or 104.
