A few weeks ago there was a discussion about how to make hydrangeas out of buttercream icing. I passed along the Wilton yearbook's five-petal hydrangea short-cut and that led to a discussion about four-petal and five-petal hydrangeas....
Anyway, I just discovered that tip 54 will make a four-petal drop flower, in addition to all the other fancy borders and such. So, it might be a good tip to use for a quick buttercream hydrangea cake.
Maybe this would be good for lilacs, too?
Just thought I'd share because I've never considered that tip a drop flower tip before and figured there are more of you out there just like me.
Great tip (Ha Ha--play on words), thanks for the info!
I must've missed the Wilton instructions on how to make the buttercream hyrangea
Either use the ball, egg, wonder mold pan (or the mini versions), or a mound of icing for the base of your hydrangea blossoms. Then, simply cover all over with tip 190 five-petal drop flowers (or tip 54 four-petal drop flowers ). Tip 127 or another large petal tip can be used for the ruffly leaves, and then simply make stems with a tip 7 or other round tip. Make sure to spatula stripe your piping bag or use two colors swirled together in your piping bag for more realistic colored blossoms.
I think I can handle that ... thank you very much !!
ACan I see what they look like? Thanks much
