Additional Information

Step 1

Tint medium consistency icing with petal icing color and a small amount of icing Lemon Yellow for flower center. Fit one decorating bag with petal decorating tip 104 and fill 1/2 full or less with tinted icing. Fit second decorating bag with round decorating tip 1 and fill 1/4 full or less with yellow tinted icing.

Step 2

Attach flower nail template, if using, to Flower Nail. Using a dot of icing, attach icing flower square to flower nail.

Step 3
Step 3

Hold the decorating bag with tip 104 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 just slightly above the nail surface. Using consistent pressure, move tip away from the center to nail edge and back as you spin the nail 1/5 turn; relax pressure as you move back to the center of the nail curving tip slightly upward to create a cupped shape, allowing the movement of the nail to form the first petal. Stop squeezing; pull tip away.

Step 4

Pipe dot stamens with tip 1.

Step 5

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 pull-out dot stamens.

Step 6

Remove flower on flower square from flower nail. For a more natural shape, place in the large concave portion of the Wave Flower Former to dry overnight.

Step 7

Hints: If you prefer a more cupped shape, increase the angle you hold the tip.

For a quick flower center, substitute Specialty Decorator Tip 233 for Tip 1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This flower looks always beautiful and it is simple to make. You just need to get somewhat confortable with turning the nail but just make a few practice flowers and they will start coming out looking great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The wild rose is easy to achieve once you get the hang of turning the nail as you move the tip outward; you need to use light to medium consistent pressure as you turn the nail with the narrow side not touching the nail. As you turn and bring the tip back down to the starting point release the pressure and lift slowly. Each pedal will have a slight different crease and is what makes each flower unique. It may take a few tries to get comfortable with turning the nail and using the pressure to create the pedal but you will find this a fun flower to make.
