Video – Floral Buttercream Cake Tutorial with Russian Piping Tips
This floral buttercream cake is made simple with just a few Russian Piping Tips. I love these, they take a while to get use to it but once you got it.. it’s gold!! I started off with these 10 tips a few months ago.
But now recently have got some more – the whole set! Yup! Can’t wait to play with these and show you what I do with it too.
You see the top of this cake – How pretty are those Tulips and Roses.
The sides are just a simple Wilton round piping tip no 12 .
In the very beginning of the video you will see I have used Magic Colours – I’ve used Yellow, Fuschia, grapevine. And of course I have used my Velvet American Buttercream Recipe

Some tips to making this Floral Buttercream Cake –
- Use a stiff buttercream consistency icing.
- Do not whip your buttercream too much. Air pockets are not fun when piping.
- Mix colors without adding too much air into your buttercream
- The colors will deepen as they sit – so once you start the cake – make sure you finish the cake.
- If you store buttercream for later – the color may not be the same as the ones in on the cake. The colors shades will be different. In this case it’s not critical.
