Pipe pretty rosettes to create the lion’s mane
Fill a piping bag with orange-colored buttercream and fit with a classic 1M tip. Pipe rosettes along the top of the cake by squeezing the piping bag and rotating in a tight counterclockwise circle. Vary the sizes of your rosettes by using piping tips with different dimensions. Lyndsay adds additional whimsical flair by hiding little pink buttercream roses within the lion’s mane. Check out our guide to making buttercream flowers for a little extra help. We encourage you to be playful in your decorating because who doesn’t love a lion with a flower tucked behind his ear?
