To create beautiful icing roses you need to start with a base and build petal by petal. To stop the icing rose from sticking to the rose platform, squeeze a dollop of frosting or butter icing on the head of the platform and then place a small piece of wax paper over the top to hold the paper in place.
Hold the broad end of the rose icing tip at the centre of the platform. Rotate the nail clockwise and squeeze out enough icing to form a small cone.
