How to Pipe a Sunflower is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Make sure your frosting is stiff, if it is too soft the pedals will droop. Squeeze hard enought to pipe leaf shaped petal out to your preferred size pulling straight out, release pressure and then stop and pull away. Don't worry about each flower being the same size because different sizes will give you a garden look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this was the first flower i mastered and the most popular requested on cakes. I make it with buttercream directly on the cake/cupcake and turns out great. Instead of using the star tip for the center, i use small dots and it gives the flower a more realistic look, like seeds

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used these for easter cupcakes. Instead of the icing center I used mini choclate chips. I piped all of the leaves first and then added the mini chips. They were cute and a little crunch with the chips. Loved them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have done this on cupcakes many times, I have the sunflower pan and use them as a team for teas. I have gotten to where I use oreos and mini oreos as the centers as this adds a little texture and fun to the cupcake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love making sunflowers on cakes. The technique is so easy and it can be a lot of fun changing up the colors and sizes. I made a 14x19 birthday cake with a variety of sunflowers and the birthday girl loved it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used this flower to cascade over the sides of a 4 tier wedding cake. The bride loved it. I found that the flowers were fairly easy to make. Most of my centers were smaller than the one shown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use mini oreo cookies for the centers, then I sprinkle some cake sparkles on top. Quite a showstopper for a cupcake,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made my sunflowers on a much smaller scale, with just one star in the center, but they still came out great!
