Drop flowers are a great way to add flowers quickly. Pipe drop flowers in buttercream directly on your cake, or pipe in royal in advance and place your flowers anywhere. Flowers will be sharper in definition when piped in royal.

The drop string is traditionally used as decoration on the sides of the cake and is the basis of more ornate stringwork. Called a ?drop? string because the line of piped icing is allowed to ?drop? or fall, by itself, before re-attaching it to your cake. Pipe a row of single strings or multiple strings in rows of two or three.

Create this magnificent rose - the most popular icing flower of them all. With practice, your roses will have the just-picked look of real fresh garden roses!

The Shell is the most popular icing technique of all. It's the basis for many borders, fleurs de lis and more. Lift the tip only slightly when piping to avoid a bumpy look.

The Half Rose is really a rosebud with two side petals. You can also give your half roses a fuller look by adding two or three more side petals.

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.

Using classic fleurs de lis as a topiary for tiny drop flowers is an elegant and creative touch that will help your cake stand apart.
