Rose swirl icing has exploded since I am Baker made her first rose cake back at the start of last year. The prettiness and simplicity of the design has made it a popular decoration on cakes the world over – even our very own Bluebells Cakery has her own take on it!
But for something so popular, rose swirls are beyond easy to create yourself! All you need is an open star tip (like Wilton’s 1M), a decorating bag and a bowl full of your favourite icing (I love this buttercream recipe).
There are countless tutorials available online that show you how to master this technique, but you should definitely learn from the rose swirl master – Amanda of I am Baker. Check out her brilliant tutorial here and try your hand at creating your own!
