I have tried and tried and they turn out like crap. I have managed to avoid them (I do mostly carved or kiddie cakes anyway) until TODAY. I need 6 measly roses and they all look horrid. No matter what I do the edges of the petals frill. I started with Wilton recipe icing, I have tried really firm icing, then thinned it out a little, thinned it more to no avail. Then I made indydebi's buttercream and it STILL frills. I have even been trying to use hershey kisses as a base since no matter how firm the icing is, the bases still seem wobbly.
How do I make the petals to stop frilling?? Where am I going wrong? I only need 6 roses and I have been trying for hours last night
