If you have ever wondered how two tone buttercream roses are made, then this is the tutorial for you. You only need two to three colours in gradient shades for a more natural look. A stable frosting such as Buttercream as shown in this tutorial video and a piping tip such as a Wilton tip 2D to give you the effect of beautiful roses.
In the tutorial video below I used my Smooth Buttercream recipe and Fluffy Vanilla Cupcakes, which are moist, fluffy and full of Tahitian Vanilla flavour. You can use any other frosting and if you are after something a little less sweet than buttercream you could try my Swiss Meringue Buttercream recipe which is silky and pipes beautifully.
Items you will need and Instructions:
-Watch my how to video posted above.
-A cupcake recipe.
-A frosting recipe.
-Any open star tip or similar to pipe roses or rosettes. In this tutorial I used Wilton tip 2D.
-Piping bags. I used 18″ size disposable piping bags for this video as I used a medium coupler which is big in size. Otherwise you only need 12″ size piping bags if not using a coupler.
-Medium size coupler. A coupler will hold the tip in place, however it is not necessary unless you are going to change tips and use the same piping bag.
-Several bowls to separate the buttercream or frosting for different colours. In this tutorial I used Wilton colors, Creamy Peach, Rose and Pink.
–Spoons or metal spatulas to add the frosting into the piping bags and to mix the food colour into the frosting.
-Food clips or similar to seal the piping bags. I use food clips from Ikea.
