Hold the decorating bag at a 45° angle at 3:00 (9:00 for left-handed decorators) with wide end lightly touching center of the nail; narrow end is pointing out and angled 1/8 to 1/4 in. above nail surface. Using steady pressure, move Tip 104 out about 1/2 in., then back to center as you spin the nail 1/6 turn, allowing the spin of the nail form petal. Relax pressure as you move back to starting point to form the first petal. Stop pressure squeezing, pull tip away.

Daffodil is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this flower!! Pinching the edges with cornstarch on your fingertips is a great tip, I have a tiny container of cornstarch I just keep in my cake decorating supplies, so I always have it handy. Make sure you used the correct consistency of icing or you'll struggle through this one. And if there are any clumps in your thin icing it will clog up the size 1 tip for the top of the stamen. I thought this would be bigger, but its pretty tiny. So pretty though, wish I would have known about it when I got married 10 years ago, I would have requested it on my wedding cake!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Of all the Wilton flowers I ever made, this is my favorite. It looks complicated but it really is easy to make. It's so exciting watching it form right before your eyes after you wait for the petals to dry a little bit so you can form the pointed tips and piping the swirl cup and the curly top is quite a treat. I always have fun watching my friends when I teach them and see this wide eyed expression on their faces once they get to make them. Now that makes my day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These flowers are so cheery. I've made all of the other flowers in different colors except the daffodil. Yellow just seem like the perfect color for this flower. Doing the zigzag in tip 1 can really slow me down. When I'm making a bunch of these flowers I use tip 2 in order to speed things up. They look great with tip 2 zigzags and it saves my hand some pain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THESE ! they may start of a little funny looking but turn out to be great ! i have tons on these in my back up flower box in about 4 different colors! they look great if you can two tone them! if you know how to stripe well then make the bottom a darker color so it only shows on the folded edges, match that color with the little swirlies on top!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wondering WHY Wilton NEVER answers anyone's questions? After visiting here several times, there are a few things I need help with, but can I get it? Can I get a question answered? NO! So I found a new site.....This one is not helpful to anyone at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of the prettiest flowers to make. It helps to have three bags of yellow icing ready so you don't have to constantly switch tips. Cornstarch really helps to pinch the petals without ruining the icing or getting it all over your fingers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This flower is so beautiful and turns out amazing when you do it with royal icing! It seems big on the screen but in real life they are smaller. No matter the size, it is a beautiful flower made from icing! By far one of my favorites!
