Mini Rose Cupcakes – Piping Technique Video Tutorial

 This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my privacy policy for more details

I first used this technique when decorating cupcakes as part of a wedding cupcake tower. The bride wanted the cupcakes to look like mini bouquets of roses. I love how these cupcakes look, they are so pretty and delicate, and make a change from a traditional buttercream swirl, and I really wanted to share with you how I did them.

This is the same technique that I have used on giant cupcakes in the past, but instead of using the Wilton 2D piping tip which you use for the larger roses, I used a smaller version, the number #34, or you could use the #35, which has a closed star end. In this tutorial I show you how I hold my piping bag and the techniques that I use for creating the mini roses and tiny flowers.

In the tutorial I use 2 different colours of purple buttercream to give this really pretty effect.  really hope you enjoy the video tutorial and also enjoy making your own version of these cupcakes.

In this tutorial I have created a batch of vanilla cupcakes. This is one of my favourite recipes and if you would like it too you can find it here, along with the recipe for my vanilla buttercream.

I really hope you like it and find it useful in your own cake decorating. If you enjoy the video you can subscribe to my YouTube channel for more FREE video tutorials.
