This is a stock photo of a cupcake I saw when I was reading an article about the "cupcake law" in Illinois.
Here is a link to the article:
I LOVE the look of this flower, but can't quite get my head around the technique/tip used to create the flower.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
probably a rose tip and just a twist of the cupcake with a sweeping motion of the tip.......making three petals without lifting the tip.
much like the inside ring of these.......only instead of making 5 or 6 petals just make the three...............
(that's my best guess)
Actually I think there are only 2 petals. A short one is piped 1st covering about 1/3rd of the top, then the 2nd one partly goes over the 1st but takes up about 2/3 of the finished flower - meeting the 1st petal at the top and bottom and leaves a small hole in the center. I agree it probably is a rose tip - 103 or 104. Think of the cupcake as a flower nail. Turn it as you would the nail while piping out a ribbon of icing. HTH :)
Orchid, Phalaenopsis, Moth Orchid
google a photo of this flower. It is the closest to the buttercream flower that I could find, in shape & color.
AI only see one continuous strip of buttercream, unless it's my phone screen playing tricks on me.
Yes, that's what I meant. To pipe it in one continuous strip without breaking off the icing just keep it moving in a circle. That's how I made my cupcake flowers. You can wriggle the tip to give some shape and form to make it look like individual petals, but it's actually one strip.
