Making an Icing Rose

Are you sick of watching endless videos where people are good at things? Then I have something fun for you! Watch as I begin my journey to learn how to decorate cakes. In this episode, I try to create my first icing rose.

In the video, I joke that comments should be directed to Emmy Made in Japan. Her videos are awesome. If you like my videos, you will love hers.

I also welcome constructive feedback on how I can improve my technique. I’m pretty sure that I’m using the wrong petal tip (I’ll talk about that in my follow-up video in a few days), and I think that my icing needed to be chilled a bit more. It was a warm day, and my icing was straight out of the room temperature tub.

 

Unboxing: Cake Decorating Kit
