  • 1
    Lay a thin layer of icing on top of baked goods to help flowers stick when piped.
  • 2
    Hold tip slightly above surface, squeeze until icing touches surface and pull up while applying slight pressure. When desired height is reached, stop pulling, release the pressure, and remove.
  • 3
    Fill in gaps around flowers by piping leaves.
  • 4
    Layer multiple icing colors for more impact. Create layered icing by laying thin layers onto cling wrap, then rolling up into a log and placing into piping bag.
