I'm a visual and do kind of person, I need some tutorials on royal Icing and buttercream flowers. Is there a website or a couple of good instruction books that would help me learn how to do these?
What kind of flowers are you looking for?
You can find some step by steps on the Wilton.com site. Also have you consider any Wilton classes? In C1 you learn the rose, sweet pea and drop flower. C2 you learn royal icing and learn the rose bud, mum, violet, apple blossom, daffodil, pansy, primrose, daisy and Victorian rose. C3 has royal icing flowers using the lily nail. You will do the easter lily, pionsetta, morning glory and petunia.
If you are a visual learner the Wilton classes might be a great idea.
i agree with everythingTexasSugar says. i have never regretted taking any wilton course. took them all. love all the flowers i learned, and to learn about royal icing and color flow. i am a visual and do person also.
Thanks, I have learned most of these, the problem is, is that I didn't have time to practice after I learned so I'm stumbling. I want to make a bunch of all different types of flowers, one so I remember how to do them when I need to, and secondly for practice. I take cake classes at a local shop and have learned the flowers but didn't take any notes. Now I'm lost.
I saw lots of videos on youtube i'm sure you could learn some on there. Did you keep any of the books from the classes, I know that helps me alot.
Here's mine for roses:
