Hold the decorating bag with tip 59s/59° (59°L for left-handed decorators) 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 is pointing out and angled 1/8 in. above the nail surface. Squeeze with light pressure, moving tip out slightly, then back to center to make a 1/4 in. long petal as you spin the nail slightly less than 1/4 turn; relax pressure as you move tip back to starting point, allowing the spin of the nail to form the petal. Stop squeezing; pull tip away.

Squeeze with light pressure, moving tip out to the edge of the nail , then back to center as you spin the nail 1/5 turn, to make a 3/8-1/2 in. long petal; relax pressure as you move tip back to starting point, allowing the spin of the nail to form the petal. Stop squeezing; pull tip away. These petals are longer than they are wide. Repeat to make two more bottom petals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I enjoyed making these, they are so cute and pretty...Can make a cake look so beautiful! They are easy to make, follow the directions and add as many as you can. Make a border or make a little design of them but they are very pretty and your friends will be so amazed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made the Quiet Violet cake for a Wedding cake last summer. I have 2 more orders for the same cake this summer. It is absolutly beautiful. I did violets combined with apple blossoms in a lighter tone of purple then topped the cake with Primrose flowers. Thank Goodness for step by step instuctions on flowers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this little flower. Be aware that a little bit of icing goes a long way, since they are very smaill, although you need to make a lot. they are nice to keep to decorate whatever last minute cake/cup cake you make ;-) enjoy them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my favorite royal icing flower to make! The little circle patterns Wilton has make it very easy to create, and the tiny flowers look AMAZING with a leaf or two on a cupcake or grouped with other flowers or more violets on a cake. The best thing about royal icing is that you can make the flowers way in advance, store them in an air-tight container, and just pull them out when you're ready to decorate!
