Here's my first "Quickie" video! There are so many icing techniques floating around out there on Pinterest and cake blogs, but not many videos that quickly and easily explain and show how to do them. So, here you go! This is a really easy icing technique, but seeing it done really helps you master it quickly.
To help demonstrate the technique, I put swirl roses covering a whole cake and topping cupcakes, so you can see how you can use this technique yourself. Remember, when you're covering a cake with these roses, you still need to ice your cake first, just enough so that any gaps between roses won't show cake. (Looking at these photos, though, it looks like I forgot to do that!) Someday I may have to create a DIY blog post how to make the adorable bunting for cakes.
