My First Time . . . With Piping Buttercream Rosettes!

I hope you all had an amazing Mother’s Day! Each and every day should be Mother’s Day considering what they’re always doing for us. This Mother’s Day, I made a layer cake for my amazing mom. I was running a bit (read: very) short on cash this year, so I couldn’t afford to buy her an extravagant gift. So I decided to try my hand at making a cake covered in rosettes.  Image

 

I did cheat a little, though. I used a dark chocolate cake mix instead of making it from scratch. I had an AP exam coming up, so I didn’t have much time to put together something. However, I did try to spice it up a little by spreading the inside with some delicious nutella.

For the frosting, I just made this basic buttercream and dyed it with a little bit of Americolor’s Teal food gel.

I know this isn’t perfect, but hopefully I’ll improve my “frosting skills” as I practice some more. If you have any experiences with frosting that you’d like to share, feel free to comment below!
