A carnation is a welcomed flower in any season—try it with a striped bag (stripe on narrow tip side) for lovely color variation.


Difficulty: Somewhat Easy


Step 1

Decorate with: Petal tip 104 and stiff consistency royal icing. Use flower nail no. 7 with apple blossom/primrose template covered with icing flower square. Hold bag at 45° angle with wide end of tip lightly touching nail surface, narrow end pointing out and raised 1/8 in. above nail surface.

Step 2

Begin the first row of five petals. Pipe first petal moving tip 104 in a jiggling up-and-down motion.

Step 3

Continue with four more petals, slightly overlapping the previous petal.

Step 4

Pipe the second row of four petals, then the third row of three petals.

Step 5

Angle tip up slightly. Finish with one or two center petals at top. Let dry.

Step 6

Hint: Make the petals of this richly textured flower using a tight up-and-down motion. Piping on the apple blossom/primrose template from our flower nail templates set will help guide you to proper petal position.
