Here's the problem - the first rosette cake I ever made, the rosettes fell off the side of the cake by the next morning because I think my icing was too wet (that's the only thing I can think of, but my icing is usually fine). So this time, I made my icing SLIGHTLY stiffer than usual. Well with the stiffer icing, I couldn't get the rosettes to stick to the cake! They would just peel off when I tried to finish each rosette. I am really disappointed in it and thought it looked very messy. Oh well.
For those of you who have done a rosette cake, did you have trouble piping them on the side of the cake? Any suggestions for next time?
