Cake & Cupcake Decorating Idea....


Here is a really pretty way to decorate a cake.
Looks very impressive.
And can be done quickly.
For a simple icing bag, I use a plastic bag.
Instructions on how to do this are at the bottom of this post.
Works a treat!
The cake is just a simple chocolate cake.
Sprinkled with icing sugar. 
And piped with roses.
(Using the plastic bag technique).
Wipe the icing sugar off where the circular icing roses are going to be put, 
otherwise it will slide off the cake.
This moist chocolate cake recipe is always a good one:
Add some flower sprigs to the plate for a final touch of pretty...
 Share with your guests and ENJOY!
These icing roses are a great decoration on cupcakes too.
Make your icing...
You will need a Wilton 2D nozzle...
Cut the corner off a sandwich bag,  and poke the nozzle through.  
It needs to be a tight fit.
Sit the bag in a glass and spoon in the icing...
Close the bag squeezing the air out.
Start from the centre of each cupcake ,
 and twirl the icing around in a spiral motion as you squeeze the plastic bag.  
Hold it quite close to the nozzle (icing tip) so you have control.
My roses are never 100% perfect, and unless you are a cake icing pro, yours probably won't be either.  
Practice does make perfect...but I can guarantee your guests will be so impressed regardless!
I had to make cupcakes just so I could show you how wonderful they look (and taste!).
Banana cupcakes with raspberry butter cream icing roses...
So very pretty don't you think?
