I will so never have the skills to make this cake, but I admire the author and architect -- "iambaker" -- who shares her tutorial and photos for it.
SO excited to share with you how easy it is to make the rose cake. (Video tutorial HERE. In four minutes I frost an entire three layer Rose Cake!) Seriously, once you see you are going to run right out, buy a 1M tip, and make one. That or go back to work. Or bed. Or whatever it was you were doing
