Aster is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I chose to make this design right around Mothers Day. It is very simple to accomplish, but has a very fancy and beautiful look. Got several compliments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I decorated cupcakes for a friend's daughter. She had a girl's rock theme and wanted cupcakes to represent a rock star's hair. I used a pink marshmallow fluff icing because the b-day girl did not like buttercream icing. The icing fell slightly more than if directions were followed but the cupcakes turned out great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I enjoyed making this flower with royal icing. I used this flower on a cake for my sister's anniversary which was in November. She really liked the flowers in the fall colors. Just follow the directions on the royal icing to get the right stiffness to the icing. They don't have to be perfect because when you bunch them together and add the leaves they really look great!
