I'm trying to make peonies from buttercream and was wondering if anyone else has tried it. I'm thinking a stiffer buttercream will give me the broken edges that we don't want on roses but would look right on a peony and I'm wondering if anyone has made any that weren't just roses that didn't turn out right. Instead of the petals turning out like a rose, I want to try to have them cupped inward more... Any suggestions on a better tip to use?

Try giving SeriousCakes a pm with that question. She's a buttercream queen, I've seen her do amazing things with a piping bag!

Sorry for the delay... I was going to use a 104 and see how it would work if I held the bag differently. I have a 97 but I don't ever remember using it so I'm not sure what it would look like. Somewhere I have the old Wilton tip book but I can't remember seeing anything in it that would help. I need to start on these tomorrow so I'll pm SeriousCakes and see if she can help...

Hi icon_smile.gif

I know this is probably too late to help you, but I've made buttercream peonies. If you're still interested, you can PM me and I can let you know how I ended up doing them. I've attached a pic so you can see my final result. Hope yours turned out well!

Holy Cow!!! That's fantastic!! It's too big for what I was doing but I would still like to know how you did it.

I made a bunch of them to make the cake top look like an English garden and was trying to make them small (per the bride's drawing). I did get it to look like them but I used a #103 and a kind of jiggly motion to get it to look like petals and make it jagged looking. I'm still perfecting it but, if I get where I think it looks good enough to share, I'll try to do a video or something.

Can you share how you did it??

It doesn't appear Mobogal has posted in several years, but does anyone have an idea of how this buttercream flower was achieved? It really is quite beautiful and I'd love to be able to duplicate it. My attempts so far have been less than successful. The closest I've been is with a 104 for the petals, waited for it to crust and gently cut the and separated the tips.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
