Amanda @ TMI

Thanks for including the instructions. My daughter turns one this month, and this is the perfect cake for her first birthday!

I saw a pic of this cake the other day and though I would have tried without your tutorial do you know how nice it is to have it??! Simply beautiful. I would more likely serve it on a red plate for Valentine color than color the frosting; the white just looks so beautiful


It's amazing!!!
Thank you so much for this, I will make it for my freind wedding :)

amanda areias

Beautiful!! Simple and so elegant!


This is really an eye-popper. I'm scratching my brain thinking of a special event I could make this for.




I'd like to give those a try on cupcakes, they look great!


beautiful cake just wondering how to do the vertical cake?thanks


That is BRILLIANT. There are no other words.

Gwendolyn McBee

This is absolutely perfect for an upcoming cake that I have to make for someone. You shared it with us just in the nick of time. I LOVE this idea. It certainly beats making the roses where each petal is piped on separtely. Yeahhhhh I think I feel a happy dance coming on!! :-)


Yet another great tutorial! I just shared about your easy decorating techniques and your buttercream recipe on my blog this morning! you make it look so easy!


Thanks for the tutorial! This is a very beautiful cake!!

megan @ whatmegansmaking

thank you so much for this tutorial! I love the cake and can't wait to try it. That 1M tip really is amazing.

Amy's blah, blah, blogging

Thank you for this and the buttercream recipe. Ever since you put the picture out there a couple of days ago I have been researching frosting roses. They all did it with a 104 and I was able to do that, but now I'm interested in trying it with this tip instead. Got a special girl celebrating this weekend and I think she needs some purple roses for her cake!

You are such an inspiration Amanda!


Beautiful! I can't wait to try it!


Wicked wicked woman, making us wait............but I LOVE you!!!!! Thank you so much for the tutorial! Can't wait to amaze everyon with this cake. They already think I am an amazing baker, but this will FLOOR them!!!!!!!!

Olga @ mangotomato

Tiffany Rosenberger

This is AMAZING! Thanks so much for sharing. I love your blog.

Lindsey Campbell

This cake is so beautiful! I have a baby shower in a few weeks... I will definitely be giving this the ol' College try. They are having a girl, so the pink coloring will be perfect - although white is classic. I'll let you know how it turns out!

Rachel V.

Thank you thank you THANK YOU!!!! I can't wait to do this! So simple and beautiful. You are so generous to give this secret away. Thank you!!


That's AMAZING! Now I want to make a cake for valentine's day. I'll be spreading the word about your gorgeous cake.


Hi Amanda,
First, I love your blog!! It's so fun to see what you create! Second, I noticed that you didn't use a coupler with the 1M tip...did this present any problems? Thanks!


This is incredibly beautiful.

Ashley Lee

How gorgeous! Thank you SO much for posting this tutorial! My daughter's baptism is in two weeks and I have been trying to come up with an elegant design for a cake for afterwards. She adores pink and roses. After viewing your tutorial I have figured out what I'm going to create. I am going to make a pink rose cake! I'm so thankful for having a plan now.

How do you think mixing light pink and hot pink roses would look together on a cake? Or should I just stick to one color? Thanks again!


Hi there--I'm a new reader (just added you to my RSS feed) and I want to thank you so much for posting this! I've been itching (more than usual) for Friday in anticipation of your tutorial. I haven't been able to stop thinking about this gorgeous cake! It's such a stunning piece of work--I think I'm going to try it tomorrow.

Really looking forward to the vertical cake tutorial too. You do amazing amazing AMAZING work!!

marla {family fresh cooking}

Truly, reading your post the other day kept me together during dental impressions. Thought I was gonna have a HUGE panic attack in the chair & your b'day post took me away from it all. Thanks for this tutorial, truly I know I could still screw this up ;)

sweetie pie

Really pretty! I like the all white version the best too. Thanks for the easy to follow directions.
