Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love makeing this flower! It is so much fun and looks wonderful on the cake. My tip would be to use wax paper sprayed with Pam because I have found they dry quicker and is easier to pull off without breaking. The foil method works well also but I have better luck with the wax paper. Also, if you just happen to break one, save for a later use for possibly a fill in petal kind of like a leaf would do. I have done this before and it blends in well with the right colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love the way these types of flowers turn out. But I'm not sure how often I would want to get all the supplies out for these. Plus, I get very nervous that they will break. I think I get stressed out enough about getting a cake done on time and not dropping it, that the flowers jsut make it worse. But if you've got the time, they are worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from After mastering the lily, I found the Bluebell to be fairly easy. It's a fairly delicate flower & must, therefore, be handled wth some care. However, it is certainly worth the effort. It's very pretty & dainty & has been a favourite of mine because it never fails to bring compliments!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practice makes perfect. I love making these flowers but had to practice a lot to have them come out looking like they should. I made them in pale blue and pale yellow and my cake turned out so pretty. I too save my egg cartons to dry royal icing flowers in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You have to make sure your icing is the absolute right consistency. It would be nice if Wilton would make the cups a little bigger so we could use aluminum foil as the sheets required for this are expensive and aluminum foil is relatively cheap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this technique, but I have learned to spray my foil with a little nonstick cooking spray before piping icing on it to make the bluebells, so the flowers don't break as easily when removing them from the foil once they are dried.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have found when making the bluebell I make sure the last pedal is the one between the first two, it seems to keep them from breaking. I also set them in an egg carton to dry because it helps keep the shape and again less breakage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a lil difficult to make for the first timer, I wanted to make alot of flowers, but it does take some time.. Will try some easier ones and then come back to this one, but it did come out pretty tho.. Practice makes perfect.
