The vibrant pansy features petals in complementary colors and a distinctive loop center. Pansies can be found in a wide variety of colors, including all yellow or all dark blue, white or purple petals with yellow centers.
Decorate with: Petal tip 104 and medium consistency royal icing. Use flower nail no. 7 with violet template from flower nail templates set. Hold bag at 45° at 3:00 (9:00) with wide end of tip lightly touching flower nail center, narrow end pointing out and raised ¼ in. above nail surface.
Pipe two back petals, squeezing and moving tip out to edge of nail. Turn nail slowly while squeezing, relax pressure as you return to nail center. Repeat to form second back petal.
Use the same sequence to add two shorter petals atop the first two.
Squeeze out a base petal that equals the width of the back petals, using a back and forth hand motion for a ruffled effect.
Add tip 1 string loop centers.
Hint: The pansy features petals in complementary colors and a distinctive loop center. Choose colors to complement the rest of your project. You can do one-color flowers in yellow or dark blue, or mix white, yellow or purple petals with yellow centers.
