Let’s Review the April Baking Challenge
April 2017 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Buttercream Frosting Roses
April’s baking challenge was creating beautiful buttercream frosting roses. And I was blown away by your response! I’ve never seen more stunning cake and cupcake decorating artwork in my life. You all have some major talent! Many of you used Easter as the opportunity to master two-toned roses while others shared their work throughout the month– I hope this challenge inspired you to tackle a new technique, or if frosting decoration was already your thing, enjoyed the process.
One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Mary:
“I tried this today in preparation for doing them on a birthday cake. It was so easy! I want to put roses on everything! Thank you so much for this challenge. I never would have tried to do something like this in a million years!”
