This Week - Piping A Buttercream Rose Swirl
With Mother's Day next month we thought the Cupcake Buttercream Rose Swirl would be a nice little project to teach this week and with the right piping tube it's really easy to master. Your cupcakes must be flat, so if they have risen into a dome, cut the tops off with a sharp knife.
1.The best tube to use is the Wilton 1m Large Star Tube as it has 6 points with deep ridges which will create the appearance of petals. Hold your piping bag vertically and start piping a star in the middle of the cupcake.
2.Continue piping, swirling outwards and around the star.
3.The secret is to work your way around the surface of the cupcake without building height. Continue to swirl outwards and around the outer edge of the cupcake easing off the pressure to finish.
