How to Pipe a Daisy is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found an Easter Basket cake in a Wilton book and I duplicated it for a family get-together. The Daisy was easy and beautiful. A lot of people thought I had purchased the flowers for the cake they looked so professional. All you have to do is make sure the consistency of your royal icing is just right. Lying them in cups or something to create variations in the way the petals bend make them even more realistic and interesting.
