• You will need two colors of royal icing (one for the petals and the other for the flower center) 
  • Consistency: Medium
  • Tip: 2D

Directions:

  1. Insert a drop flower tip to a decorating bag (no coupler needed).
  2. Push the tip as far as you can to make sure the icing will not squezee out of the bag.
  3. Fill your bag with medium consistency royal icing.
  4. Cover your working surface with wax paper.
  5. Place the drop flower tip on top of the wax paper (make sure the tip touches the surface and stays there while you are making the flower).
  6. Squezee the decorating bag and turn the tip clockwise one quarter of the turn.  Here is the trick, the moment you start squeezing you need to start turning.  Do not stop squeezing while moving the tip.  This will form the petals of your flower.
  7. Stop squeezing and at the same time stop turning.  Slowly lift the tip up.
  8. In some cases there will be a hole in the middle where the tip used to stand.  Do not worry about this, since this will be covered when we make the centers.
  9. Squeeze a dot in the center to create a ‘flower center’ (use the color of your choice).
  10. Continue making flowers as needed.
  11. Let dry for 20 minutes
  12. Carefully peel off the wax paper and use the beautiful flowers for decorating!!!
