To pipe rosettes, hold your tip perpendicular to the surface you’re piping on. Start where you want the center of your rosette to be, then pipe with even pressure all the way around that center point. A little before you get to the end of the rosette, release pressure and continue the circular motion so that the tail tapers off. And that’s it for a rosette, super easy!
This cake was created by simply piping small star dots in a wavy line pattern.Pro tip: Whenever you’re piping star dots like this, you want to hold the tip in once place while you squeeze, then stop squeezing before you pull away. If you keep squeezing as you pull away, you’ll end up up with sort of pointy looking blobs instead of nice neat little stars.

About five petals is good to start. I started with a pink color and gradually blended the colors as I moved towards the center of the flower.
