Tint medium consistency icing with petal icing color and a small amount of icing Lemon Yellow for flower center. Fit one decorating bag with petal decorating tip 104 and fill 1/2 full or less with tinted icing. Fit second decorating bag with round decorating tip 1 and fill 1/4 full or less with yellow tinted icing.
Attach flower nail template, if using, to Flower Nail. Using a dot of icing, attach icing flower square to flower nail.
Hold the decorating bag with tip 104 at a 45° angle at 3:00 (9:00 for left-handed decorators) with wide end of tip lightly touching the center of the nail; narrow end just slightly above the nail surface. Using consistent pressure, move tip away from the center to nail edge and back as you spin the nail 1/5 turn; relax pressure as you move back to the center of the nail curving tip slightly upward to create a cupped shape, allowing the movement of the nail to form the first petal. Stop squeezing; pull tip away.
For flower center, hold decorating bag with yellow icing and tip 1 at a 90° angle, slightly above the center of the flower petals. Pipe pull-out dot stamens.
Remove flower on flower square from flower nail. For a more natural shape, place in the large concave portion of the Wave Flower Former to dry overnight.
If you prefer a more cupped shape, increase the angle you hold the tip.
For a quick flower center, substitute Specialty Decorator Tip 233 for Tip 1.
