So this may seem like a dumb question but I have never made flowers directly on to cupcakes, and I was wondering how you would do this first cupcake. Would you start in the middle at a 90 degree angle and work your way out to more of a 45 degree angle. Or do you start on the outside and work your way in.

I've got extra cupcakes and icing from this weekend, and I thought I'd teach my little sister how to do something, and these look like something she'd enjoy.

the first ones look like she used a 104 tip. if she did... then ... you start on the out side.. it does not look like the 1m tip to me. which you start on the inside.. the second one looks like the chrysanthemum tip.. 81.. that is how i see it..hth

The tip they used on the second message's flowers is a 123. I've been wanting to give these a shot myself so hopefully someone will have some ideas. Good luck and have fun with your sister!

There is a really good video on you tube for cupcakes similar to these. Just look up cupcake boquet.

Here are some video's from youtube for various cupcakes with piped flowers that you could always try doing with your sister. If you want the two toned look just strip you bag. Have fun with your sis!

For the 1st pic I also think they've used a petal tip. I'm not sure which type of tip they used for #2 as I can't see it as well.
