The Shell is the most popular icing technique of all. It's the basis for many borders, fleurs de lis and more. Lift the tip only slightly when piping to avoid a bumpy look.

Pipe dots for flower centers, faces, figure piping and border effects. When making large dots, lift the tip as you squeeze to allow icing to fill out completely.

The rosette has the tight, swirling look of a rose, but is achieved in one continuous rotation, rather than with wrapped layers of petals. Single rosettes are also used as candleholders on top of a cupcake.

Stunning Mum Profusion Cake is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for my best friend's birthday and it turned out so cute! I used blue icing instead of green and had to pipe the mums right on to the cake. I do think using nilla wafers would have been easier though. I had to turn this out in 3 hours including baking time so that shows how quickly you can put this together.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Icing the cookies was a little messy, but once dried (I froze them to make sure I did not take off any icing while piping the mums), it went very quickly and looked great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It took some practice getting the mums right, but after I mastered that the cake was simple.
