A carnation is a welcomed flower in any season! Try it with a striped bag (stripe on narrow tip side) for lovely color variation.

A variety of leaves will help give your cakes a more realistic garden feel. Add piping gel to your icing to help keep your leaves from breaking.

Use food-safe Wilton Pearl Dust and Color Dust to brush or paint hints of contrasting color on your decorations.

Pipe dots for flower centers, faces, figure piping and border effects. When making large dots, lift the tip as you squeeze to allow icing to fill out completely.
