I had seen this rosette style cake on Pinterest a while back and finally gave it a try! I wanted to make it using chocolate icing though and a yellow cake. Seeing how it was my first time ever using any actual cake decorating tools I didn’t really know what I was doing, but I have to say it turned out to be much easier than I anticipated. Mine looks a little messier than I would like and I definitely need to practice more doing the filler swirls between the rosettes but all in all for a first try I was quite happy with it and it really was so easy!
I didn’t take step by step photos but I can pretty easily explain the steps. First I just used a Betty Crocker Super Moist cake yellow cake mix and filled two circular 9″ cake pans.
Here is the recipe for the frosting:
YOU WANT IT TO BE KIND OF STIFF SO IT HOLDS THE SHAPE OF THE ROSETTE.
I have to say I ended up with a little extra frosting but that was better than not having enough and although I had a little extra it wasn’t a ton extra.
First I placed the bottom round cake layer down and frosted the top of it. Then I placed the second layer on top of it. I normally like to make three layer cakes but for this one I decided to go ahead with just two to make it easier to do the rosettes on the side. Once I placed the second tier on I just iced the top of it and then the sides in a very basic not so pretty manner.
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
