Burnt 02 Orange Silk Meringue Buttercream (page 125) – how to pipe roses with warm weather

ROSE’S heavenly CAKES:  Burnt Orange Silk Meringue Buttercream (page 125) is a wonderful buttercream.  the taste is great, yet it is light and spongy.  this buttercream pipes like a dream, a smooth dream.

many students ask how do i manage to pipe roses with my tropical weather?  if i can, you can.  in fact, i made an entire rose world cake!

when your kitchen is warm and you want to pipe roses, it is important to keep this buttercream between 65 and 70 oF.  what i find most effective is to have 2 well frozen gel packs, one to rest your piping bag periodically, and the second placed underneath a 2″ deep cake pan where the finished roses are held.  the 2″ walls of the cake pan effectively keep the surrounding cool!
