hi there.. I have he same problem when I do my roses sometimes.. I put the icing in the refi for a few mintues to get them cold.. Taht should help, also.. do you have the bag filled up to high? That could be a problem.. Make sure that you have a good grip on the bag..

Are you rotating the nail too fast? Try turning it a bit slower.

To make roses, or any flower with "stand up petals" you need to use a stiff consistancy icing. If it is to stiff the edges of your petal will be frayed & jagged. If it is to thin your petals will "melt" into each other. When turning the nail use your thumb to push the nail to your fingertip. At the same time you turn the nail squeeze out petals in a arch, keeping them short. Don't try to make them to long. Keep practicing.....they get better with each one!
