Sweet Peas is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an easy technique to use and makes the cake look beautiful. I have done this on a wedding cake as the only flower used and it was fantastic. Once you get going, it takes no time at all. Follow the Wilton instructions and you can do no wrong. When using it as a border, alter the direction of the flower and try to keep close to each other. When done, poke in some leaves using tip 352 and it will look great. Have fun with colour too. White on a wedding cake, but a sunny yellow or a pretty pink makes a beautiful cake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I was just watching Wilton's video tutorial on icing consistency, and the flower used for demonstation happened to be a sweet pea. Go to the following webpage and click to watch the video, and you'll see her motions for making the flowers.... http://www.wilton.com/decorating/icing/icing-consistency.cfm

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I am going to have to get someone to show me how to do the "Sweet Peas" because I can make a rose, but these come out looking more like rose buds. Until I can get someone to show me how, I will stick to my roses!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love the sweet peas. Once you get the hang of them, they are easy to make. As long as the frosting is not going to run, it should be good. The frosting should probably be close to a medium for the sweet pea.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I don't know if I'm the only one who struggled with these, but I could not get them to look like they were supposed to! Getting the petal to curl is harder for me than just about anything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found this to be one of the easiest flowers I have learned to make, just have to take your time so they don't start looking like the rosebuds. They look great as a boarder or in a group.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found the sweet pea to be one of the easiest flowers to make. It almost like making 3 small rosebuds and conecting them together at the base. they are great for using as fillins.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I found these to be fairly simple, but they can end up looking like Rosebuds if you're not careful. Overall, it's an easy flower to put on a cake!
