I have recently retired and trying my hand at cake decorating. I really want to work at learning to pipe flowers from buttercream. Where can I find the best tutorials?

ADesignmeacake.com has some great tutorials. I think most are for fondant/gumpaste but there are a few bc flower tutorials

There is a lot of tutorials on here on Cake central.  Do a search.  Also on You tube.  http://www.youtube.com/   Just do a search for the type of flower you are looking for.  If you do a general Google search you can also find a bunch.

If you go to Wilton:

and search threw this section of the site, you'll find a lot of how-tos for flowers, etc.  HTHicon_smile.gif

Roland Winbecklker has a wonder book on butter cream flowers.   I bought if off the internet and love it.

Any type of flowers in particular?

I made a video for roses made on a stick.

I highly agree about Roland's book  It is just great.  Lots of wonderful suggested uses for each flower presented.
