  • 2D Piping Tip or any piping tip of your desire
  • Piping bag


  • 2 16 oz. canned frosting any flavor
  • ½ cup powdered sugar


  • Empty both cans of frosting in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Pour in ½ cup of powdered sugar. Mix on low speed until powdered sugar is incorporated then whip on medium speed for 30 seconds.
  • Turn the mixer off, lift the paddle attachment and see if the frosting is stiff and thick. If it still seems a little on the soft side add in the additional ¼ cup of powdered sugar. Repeat step one with mixing until stiff.
  • Using a piping bag place the 2D piping tip in the bag (for rosettes). Fill your piping bag ¾ of the way and begin piping on rosettes. Once frosting is almost done, repeat by filling bag and piping on more. Do this until your cake is full of rosettes.
