Go to the following webpage and click to watch the video, and you'll see her motions for making the flowers.... http://www.wilton.com/decorating/icing/icing-consistency.cfm

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I am going to have to get someone to show me how to do the "Sweet Peas" because I can make a rose, but these come out looking more like rose buds. Until I can get someone to show me how, I will stick to my roses!
