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.

Pansy is rated 4.8125 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I sure do love making this little flower! My first attempt was a little daunting, but after the 'first few', each one was a breeze! One of the sweet things about each little flower is that each is just 'a little' bit different from the previous one you did. Which, as in real flowers, no two are alike----so it makes them truly individual! I often thin some icing with extra color (to make it really vibrant) and paint the centers of the flowers with the darker/dominant color with a paint brush and it really makes the little beauties pop off the cake!! They are, I believe, my favorite flower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was one of my favorite flowers to pipe while I was taking my Wilton Classes. They bring so much life to the cake that they're worth the trouble. The nice thing about them is you can make them in advance and store them for use later. If you use a gentle touch, you can let the royal icing flow smoothly. Too much pressure and it will lose the delicacy of the petals. All flowers look slightly different so don't worry if they don't all match. They are truly a happy flower and one of the easier to pipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think this was my favorite flower from my class. Its a nice size and can be a bold statement flower depending on your color choice. The guide is extremely useful in keeping the flower uniform. I made the mistake of using too thin an icing for one batch and they didn't hold their shape well, so make sure you use the correct consistency icing or may get blobs (as is the case with any of the flowers, really).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Here's is one flower you can go to town with. There is so much versatility with the colors and technique. For you advanced decorators, try painting the inside of your bag with Purple then add yellow icing to it....very awesome yellow leaf with purple trim! And they look so real! You will love all the different things you can do with this flower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are wonderful flowers. I made a cake that was covered in pansies. Everyone wanted to take some home with them. They are also pretty if you mix an match different colors, or reverse the petal colors on some of the flowers. I always thin some purple food coloring and paint the edges and petal details. It really makes the flowers pop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my favorite Royal icing flower to make. I was taught by Maxine Tisbe at Michaels in Fort Smith, AR. I took five classes with her and it changed my life. To make these beautiful pansies even more beautiful try painting their pansy faces with the gel colors thinned out with a little vanilla. They become so much more realistic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think the hardest part of this flower is switching back and forth between two colors. After practicing it several times, I found that I got pretty good results. Layering the petals and center (step 3) makes it look fairly realistic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my favorite flower in the garden and my favorite to come out of a piping bag!! You can do SO much with different colors, even if they are not true colors on the real flower! It is such an easy flower to make!!
