I use a smaller petal tip, probably a 102 or 103.  I have never been very good at piping flowers directly on the cake, but it can be done.  I prefer to make them ahead out of royal icing or air-dried buttercream.

Sorry, but I am really, really bad at explaining things!  Plus I haven't made any flowers myself in quite a while (don't do many cakes anymore).  I use a flowers nail & wxed paper square.  Hold the piping bag with the wide end of a petal tip in the center and squeeze while at the same time turning the nail and moving the tip from the center, out, and back.  Do this to make 5 evenly spaced roundish petals, then pipe a few dots of yellow in the center.


It just takes practice to get the hang of it and figure out the right angle, speed, etc. 


Sorry I can't be more helpful, maybe someone else can explain it better.
