Squeeze Out Pink Frosting Circles Using A Teardrop Nozzle To Create Beautiful Rose Cupcakes

Caroline is an editorial intern who enjoys running, making origami, and beatboxing (simultaneously).

When I was a kid, I was always that overly-eager girl who pressed her face against the glass to get a closer look at bakery treats.

I have always been incredibly impressed by artists who make cake their canvas, and still to this day I am known to buy treats with extraordinary designs.

I often wonder if I would ever be able to make something that cool using icing as my paintbrush.

But thanks to this instructional video, I now know creating culinary masterpieces doesn’t have to remain a distant dream of mine!

Check out the instructions and watch the video below to learn how to make your very own gorgeous garden of cupcakes.


  • multiple frosting colors (preferably pastels)
  • petal tip nozzle
  • ruffle tip nozzle
  • round tip nozzle
  • leaf tip nozzle
  • open-star tip nozzle
  • drop-flower tip nozzle
  • multi-opening tip nozzle


  1. To make a rose cupcake, grab a tube of pink or red frosting with a teardrop-shaped nozzle. Start by squeezing a small dollop in the center, then work your way around the cupcake with petal-like squirts. Finally, use green icing to create a leafy accent.
  2. To make a sunflower cupcake, use the petal tip nozzle to apply small, careful strokes of yellow icing to the outer edge of the cupcake. Add a second, slightly-offset layer of petals on top. Finally, switch to a round-tipped nozzle to apply small, circular dollops of black icing in the center of the cupcake.
  3. To make a hydrangea cupcake, snag the diamond-shaped, leaf tip nozzle and a tube of purple icing. Similarly to the sunflower cupcake, start on the outer edge of the cake and begin fashioning small petals. In a series of concentric circles, work your way inward until the entirety of the cupcake top is covered in sugary goodness.
  4. To make a multi-flower cupcake, you will need a series of nozzles. First, use the open-star tip to create a few circular globs of purple frosting on the cupcake top. Then, opt for the drop-flower tip and gently swirl and squeeze the frosting to make pink roses. Still using a drop-flower tip, fashion tiny white flowers using tighter, more controlled swirls. Finally, grab the multi-opening nozzle tip to add some green frosting.
