I was just watching Wilton's video tutorial on icing consistency, and the flower used for demonstation happened to be a sweet pea. Go to the following webpage and click to watch the video, and you'll see her motions for making the flowers....

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!
