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.

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.

For proper spacing of Petunia petals, try this trick. Pipe tip 103 dots of icing on top of lily nail, dividing in 5ths. Visualize the points of a star. Pipe each petal centered over its dot.

The bead shape makes impressive borders outlines and accents on letters and designs; also a cute trim on clothing and gingerbread houses. The basis for making piped hearts and figure piping.

This 5-petal springtime flower, most commonly seen in white or soft pink, is virtually the same petal shape as the wild rose, but uses a smaller tip creating a petite flower. The dot stamen are typically positioned like the holes in a 5-hole button. Dry them on flower formers for a more natural look.

An iconic decorative symbol representing European royal coat of arms. The swirled shells of Fleur de Lis represent a stylized lily.
