Decorating a cake with roses made from frosting may not sound so easy, but trust us, they are! In fact, they just might be one of the more forgiving ways to decorate a cake. Start by baking your favorite flavor of cake. (We went with a simple yellow cake.) While the cake is in the oven, you can make the frosting.
Start with a cup of shortening and vanilla extract. Cream the two together for a couple minutes until fluffy.
