I'm going to show you how to make a rose foryour cupcake.
It's really fun and really beautiful.
We're going to start in the center with ourpetal tip.
The narrow end is facing up and the fatter end is facing down.
You're goingto hold it right in the middle, and you're going to spin your cupcake.
You're not goingto move your hand with the piping bag, just spin your cupcake.
This makes the center.
You want a really strong base so that your flower doesn't topple over.
Then, you're going to start at the base again.
Now we're going to start making our petals.
We're going to go in an arch motion.
You'regoing to do one, two, three.
You can already see it's started to look like a rose.
I liketo start my next petals in the middle of the one I just made so it has that really beautifuloverlapping look to it.
You want your petal tip to sort of come out a little bitso your petals open up.
It looks really nice that way.
Notice that I'm just moving my handwith the cupcake in it, not the one with the piping bag.
Just keep making these petals.
You can always stop here, but I like to make my roses so that it goes all the way to theedge.
It's really pretty.
The more you do this motion, the easier itbecomes, so practice definitely makes perfect.
The more roses you make, you'll definitelyget better at this.
Once you perfect the rose, you can do any other flower.
When you're nearingtowards the end, I like to make my petals a little bit bigger as the rose gets bigger,just so it makes for a nice open look, because you want your flowers to be blooming.
I'mjust about done.
I like to make about a dozen of these and give them to someone, becausewho wouldn't want a bouquet of edible roses?.
