I've been piping buttercream roses for the past week. Yes, I had a project but now I can't stop. I won't stop. It's akin to the addictive nature of knitting, when the process hijacks your hands and the next thing you know you've got a kitchen full of scarf (or a field of buttercream roses). "A post! I'll write a post! And Ray can shoot a Cake Magic video! That's how I'll put these roses to use!"
After further thought, I realized perhaps simply piping a rose wasn't all that much fun unless there's cake invited to the piping party. I came up with the rose push-pop cake because who doesn't love a push-pop filled with cake...topped with a rose?
