hi grandmasue-i purchased a video on ebay that showed you how to do all kinds of flowers and what tips to use. i can't remember right now which tip it is. i will have to get back with you on that, unless someone else knows off the top of their head.

To make the Easter lily, Wilton suggests using a tip#68 for the petals and tip #14 for the throat, then brush the throat with a damp brush to blend and insert seven stamens in the center. Hope this helps!

post #4 of 7 made to to widen the tip #68! I also just saw where a tip #74 can be used for the Easter Lily or Poinsettia!

I usually just buy the packs of stamens but you can make them as well. To make them...put some yellow icing (I use royal but I guess buttercream would work also) in a decorator bag with a small round tip (#1 or #2) . Insert the wire into the tip nad into the bag, pull the wire back out and gently squeeze the icing as you are pulling it will coat the wire. Then squeeze a ball of icing on the tip of the wire...put the wire in styrofoam to dry(ball end up!). Repeat for each stamen needed. It's much easier just to buy them but this works too!
