The act of piping a royal icing rose is a moment of pure relaxation for me.
It flows, it’s clean, and it’s simple. Often, cake decorating can be stressful! Gum paste bows breaking (yesterday!), fondant wrinkling when it’s not supposed to be . . . and wedding cake deliveries!!! I love my cake job, but moments of stress make the relaxation ones all the more important.
I first learned how to pipe a royal icing ribbon rose a number of years ago, and I am still following the same technique as back then. There’s not much to it to change!
To make a Royal Icing Ribbon Rose, you will need:
Recipe for Royal Icing, found here.
Petal Tip, I use Wilton #104
Round Tip, I use Wilton #12
Flower Nail…again, I use Wilton’s.
Parchment paper squares cut to 2″x 2″
For the procedure, watch the video! Happy relaxation!
