-- Royal Icing Roses; Impossible, NOT --

What better way to show off a great tasting cake than to make it really visually appealing? Here is my first shot at making roses out of royal icing. Once you get the hang of it, they are pretty easy.

Tip: Make sure you buy a flower nail at a craft store. It will make this whole process a breeze. Start at the center making a Hershey kiss out of frosting. Using a rose petal tip (I used Wilton # 104) make small 'rainbow shapes' around the base. Continue to add layers the same way until you have the desired size rose you want.

Here is a video from one of the cake decorating websites. Check it out...
