When I was asked to do this cake I knew I already had two orders for this weekend but because the request was to do the roses I knew it wouldn't be an issue. While this technique takes a lot of icing it is very forgiving and very quick to do. This was before I remembered that I also had two birthday cakes to do. Fortunately I had a vacation day that I could use yesterday to prepare. I have since implemented a better day planner system.
For this cake I did an 8" two layer vanilla cake with pink butter cream icing. I love doing these roses. If you make a mistake you can swipe off the icing and start again.
