The decorating lessons are certainly getting more challenging. We learnt multiple complex techniques today that we need to exhibit on our finale cake next week.
Out of the 10+ piping techniques taught so far – Rosette is definitely my favourite.
[LEFT] The Ribbon Rose – Another compulsory technique that we need to use on the finale cake.
[RIGHT] I bought a tub of decorator icing (which is one of the best medium for roses) to practice. I plan to make dozens of white roses sometime this week to perfect the technique!
Cupcake decoration using various piping techniques–
[LEFT] The Shaggy Mum – I so love the messy hair look. 😛
[RIGHT] Rosette & Standup Leaf – A classic design.
Look forward to my finale cake next week – I’m thinking of a black & white theme. 🙂

Woww….can you teach me how to pipe when I get back? I wanna learn how to make ribbon roses, too!
Is the decorator icing of the same texture as marzipan and fondant?
See you real soon,
Oh yes, and….SHAGGY MUM…..ROFL!
Definitely. I’m sure you would like piping – It’s very addictive! 😛
The icing texture is a little similar to fondant. Flowers require a stiff medium so that they can stand.
And yes the Shaggy mum- the tip for this is soooo cute! I have to show you!
Seeya very soon!!! 🙂
