you have to try this {frosting rosettes}

Recently I spotted these gorgeous frosting rosettes on Pinterest and just had to try them. I followed the tutorial by the fabulous I Am Baker, and I am happy to say they were even easier than I thought they'd be! 


I helped a friend with refreshments for her daughter's baptism last weekend and whipped these sugar cookies up. They are darling on cupcakes, too, instead of the big pile of frosting (although that's not a bad way to go!) I really think it was quicker to frost them like this than with a knife. And they look so much yummier! Okay, they are yummier because they have twice the frosting, but luckily I don't count calories at special celebrations.

My friend coordinated the cake with the same technique. Isn't it gorgeous? We all thought this would make a beautiful wedding cake!

And it was heartily enjoyed by all.

I love these roses! I added these to cupcakes for a wedding not too long ago-

but I really like the idea of putting them on sugar cookies. I like cookies better than cake. I also love the cake covered in roses you posted. My aunt did this on her daughter's wedding a couple of months ago and that was the first time I ever saw this kind of cake. Very pretty.
