I first saw a cake like this on the blog of another Minnesota baker, iambaker.net.
Cake ;-) (I used 2 layers of 6" round cake.)

Piping Bag and Tip #1M
You can make it!
You will use a lot of icing! This cake took 6 cups. I would be sure you have at least that if this is your first attempt. I have found that new decorators tend to use more icing.
Hold the tip straight away from the surface of the cake, and make a tight spiral. When you're working on the sides, it will be pointing at the side of the cake. When you're working on the top of the cake, the back of the piping bag should be pointing at the ceiling.
If the roses overlap a little, that's fine, and adds texture to it.
I brought this cake along when I visited a local television station to talk about Simple Special Cakes. Click here to check it out if you'd like to see the video of me showing how to make the swirls.
