How to Pipe Icing Roses — Zoe Bakes - StumbleUpon

I was limited in space and wanted to go into a bit lot more detail on how to pipe the icing roses. Creating these flowers is not at all difficult, but it helps to have some simple tricks of the trade. With a little practice and the right tools you can easily recreate these flowers. The contrasting color that tips the petals is one of those easy tricks that takes them from ordinary roses to extraordinary. Here is how I did it: You can find my recipe for the cupcakes on the Cooking Channel Piping Icing (This recipe is easy to pipe with and it has lots of body, so the flowers will have structure and not flop over. (makes about 8 large roses. 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened 2 tablespoons shortening (This gives a little insurance that it won’t melt in your hands as you are piping) 4 cups confectioners’ sugar pinch salt Food Coloring (I prefer gel or paste for intense colors) (Ateco #914) Chocolate Kiwi Popsicles - Simple Saturday.

The other day my friend sent me a text and asked, “I want to try making doughnuts and want to make churros but they look difficult.

Are they tricky to get right?!” I replied, “Nope! In fact, churros are the easiest doughnuts of all to make. There are only basic three steps!” She didn’t believe me, so I whipped up a batch that night, outlining the three steps and texted her with photos at each stage just to prove my point (hooray for technology!). She was so surprised that it only took me about twenty minutes to prepare a fresh batch of these delicious crispy doughnuts. For the doughnuts, I have a recipe that I’ve been using for years, and it never fails me. It really is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
