Homemade Buttercream Icing question

I have the reciepe for buttercream icing but I need it to be stiff. How do I make it stiff? I am needing it so I can make roses. I have tried leaving it in the fridge but that didn't work.

Also is royal icing better to use when making roses? I have tried to use canned icing but it didn't work.

I hope someone can help.

  • Try adding more powdered sugar to make it into a dough consistency. I don't know about royal icing.
