The classic Christmas Poinsettia may be piped in white, pink or red. It’s one of the more shallow flowers piped in the lily nail. Don’t push foil more than halfway into the cup.
Position foil halfway into the 1 5/8 in. lily nail. Prepare two disposable decorating bags, one with tip 352, one with tip 2. Fill bags half full with stiff consistency royal icing; Aster Mauve for petals (tip 352), Buttercup Yellow for center (tip 2). Positions: Bag: 45° angle at 3:00 (9:00) for petals, 90° angle for center. Nail: in left (right) hand. Tips: For petals: pointed end touching nail For center: slightly above flower. Insert tip into lily nail. Squeeze hard and pipe leaf-shaped petal just over edge of foil cup; relax pressure, stop and pull away. Pipe two more petals, dividing the nail into thirds.
Add three more petals in the open spaces.
Add six smaller leaf shaped petals on top and between the larger ones.
Add a cluster of 7 tip 2 dots in the center; sprinkle with Cake Sparkles™.
