How to Make an Icing Star Drop Flower


Drop flowers are a great way to add flowers quickly. Pipe drop flowers in buttercream icing directly on your cake, or make them in advance using royal icing and place your flowers anywhere.

How to Make an Icing Star Drop Flower is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The easiest flowers to do in my opinion. Too bad you can't practice on wax paper and transfer them! I love these!! I love to cover a cupcake filled with these. Make sure they interlock with each other and after the cupcake is entirely covered in these, take your tip 3 and randomly fill in a couple of the flowers' centers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flower! I made these for a flower cake and I piped them all on waxed paper, let them dry, and then placed them on the cake. Turned out great! I did the same process with the Swirl Drop Flowers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The drop star is pretty simple to use. The most "complicated" part is that you need a second color/tip for the dot in the center. A very simple flower! And looks great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super easy. However, it doesn't really resemble a flower in nature to me. I much prefer the swirl drop flower.
