Buttercreme or Royal Icing (2 options)

  1. You can make them out of royal icing and let them sit to dry and harden, this way is easier to place onto the cake once they are dried.  The royal icing dries hard and is easier to work with. 
  2. You can pipe them out of buttercream and freeze them and once you are ready to place them on the cake you will pull them out of the freezer and quickly place them where you want them!

Piping Icing Flowers

Chrysanthemum Piping Instructions

With Ateco tip #2 create a mound of icing which will be the centre of your flower. On that you will pipe spikes to create the centre stamens of your flower.

Using Ateco Tip #81 start around centre piping each petal upwards, then angling outwards more and more with each layer to create the opening effect.

Rose Piping Instructions

Using Ateco tip #104 start by piping your center "cone", This is what you will pipe your petals around to create your Rose. Maske sure the fat partof the tips is at the bottom with the thinner side up.

Start by piping each petal around your centre cone, holding your tip at approximately a60 degree angle, making each petal overlap slightly. Again fat side of the tip down with the thin side up.

Keep going around piping bigger petals on the outside crating the rose you are wanting. The more of an outwards angle your tip is the more open the rose will be when your are finished.

Ruffle Flower

Using Ateco tip#104 pipe your first layer of the flower by laying your tipflat on the surface with a back and forth motion. Make sure the thicker part of the tip is at the center of the flower.

Pipe your next layer holding your tip at a slight angle with the thicker part of the tip in the centre of the flower.

And repeat with your third layer.
