Hi again everyone.

I would love to attempt to make some spring baskets with flowers. My good friend, CindyM told me that her beautiful flowers are made with thicker icing ahead of time......placing them right on parchment paper and letting them dry, then saving them in a ziploc for topping your cookies once they are decorated.

My question.....are there any tutorials, pics, tips, etc on making flowers? I've generally only used the round tips....with an occasional leaf or star tip. I've not used the petal and flower tips successfully. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much.

Pam

Thanks psneed5 for asking this question and thanks for the link to wilton's bridal bouquet DianeLM and thanks Tracy for posting the link to how to make different flowers which I am no good at. I have some icing leftover from my cookies and cake last weekend, I might have to find time to practice. icon_smile.gif javascript:emoticon('icon_smile.gif')

Thank you so much for the links, Diane & Tracy! I'm so excited to try these out.

The cake stylist blog looks most intriguing. I hope I can learn to make all those flowers. lol

Tracy....your third link did not work. icon_sad.gif Any chance you could send it again?

I know what you mean about not getting distracted while you have lots of other things to do. I had cleaning to this morning and my PC was calliing me to come look at the forums. icon_wink.gif I resisted and got the cleaning down....so now I can play. Hurray!
