The trick to making gorgeous roses out of frosting - Rae Gun Ramblings

I thought about putting them on pops like my mermaid cookie pops and attaching a few leaves but I thought I’d keep it simple today and just do the basic cookies. They are really SO easy to do all you need is the right tip. I’ve shared how to make rosettes with frosting before with my chocolate rose ganache cupcakes but since it’s been a while since I share those I thought I’d go over it again!

 Step by step instructions on how to make perfect roses out of frosting - Rae Gun Ramblings

What You Need

  • Basic Sugar Cookies
  • 2D Wilton Tip and Pastry bag
  • Frosting (I just used the stuff in the tub)

What to Do

  1. Once your cookies are baked and cooled scoop about 1 C of frosting into your pastry bag with the tip attached.
  2. Hold the bag perpendicular to the cookie and starting in the middle squeeze and piped around in a circle. The key is to keep the bag always upright. You don’t want it tilted or to turn it at all. You hold the bag perpendicular the whole the the only movements is drawing the circle.
  3. When  you reach the edge pull it downward to break off the frosting.
