Tint medium consistency icing with petal icing color and a small amount of icing with
Golden Yellow Icing Color for flower center. Fit one decorating bag with petal
decorating tip 101s and fill 1/4 full or less with petal 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 101s 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 1/4 in. above the nail surface. Using a consistent pressure,
move tip away from the center out 1/16 to 1/8 in., then back as you turn the nail 1/5 turn;
relax pressure as you move back to the center of the nail, allowing the movement of the
nail to form the first petal. Stop squeezing; pull tip away.
Start second petal with the wide end of the tip lightly touching the center of the nail;
narrow end, slightly upward and next to the previous petal. Pipe petal as in Step 3.
Repeat to form the remaining three petals. The center of the third petal should be
positioned halfway around the flower nail base.
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 a center dot.
Remove flower on flower square from flower nail. For a more natural shape, place in the
small concave portion of the Wave Flower Former to dry overnight.
For a slightly larger forget-me-not, use Petal Decorating Tip 101.

One of the easiest and prettiest flowers to make! Just spin nail consistently when forming petals.

These are easy, quick and fun to make. Make a bunch ahead of time out of royal icing so you can have them on hand to decorate not only cakes but cupcakes and cookies as well.
