Each cookie serves 1.
One day ahead, using royal icing, pipe 14 tip 14 drop flowers with tip 1 dot enters. Make extras to allow for breakage and let dry.
Cut, bake and cool heart cookies.
Using full strength color flow icing, outline inner and outer hearts using tip 2. Thin portions of color flow icing and flow in cookie. Let dry for 2-3 hours before further decorating.
Attach drop flowers using dots of royal icing. Pipe tip 349 leaves. Add tip 2 lettering.
Drop flowers are a great way to add flowers quickly. Pipe drop flowers in buttercream directly on your cake, or pipe in royal in advance and place your flowers anywhere. Flowers will be sharper in definition when piped in royal.
A variety of leaves will help give your cakes a more realistic garden feel. Add piping gel to your icing to help keep your leaves from breaking.
Pipe dots for flower centers, faces, figure piping and border effects. When making large dots, lift the tip as you squeeze to allow icing to fill out completely.
Characters or designs are often outlined first, then piped in with stars or zigzags. Outlines can also be used for facial features.
