Hints

Make your pansy petals multi-toned by using a striped decorating bag or by painting in colors at the flower?s center or edge with a fine brush dipped in a small amount of clear vanilla which has been tinted with icing color.

If one of your petal colors is yellow, use a coupler to easily change to tip 1 for the center loop.
