Can anyone tell me why I can't seem to get smooth edges on my flower petals? they always have a jagged/cracked edge. I'm not sure if this is an issue with my icing or technique. I'm using a basic buttercream recipie.
Thanks for your help!!
my guess would be that your icing is too stiff.
Ditto...the icing is too thick and you're probably squeezing too hard because of it.
Try adding just a touch of liquid or corn syrup.
Personally I like the raggedy edges, but then I'm a little strange - I like the little weepy drops on a lemon meringue pie too.
Thanks for the help! Smooth petals here I come...I hope
