Quick buttercream hydrangea--for anyone interested

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
A few weeks ago there was a discussion about how to make hydrangeas out of buttercream icing. I passed along the Wilton yearbook's five-petal hydrangea short-cut and that led to a discussion about four-petal and five-petal hydrangeas....

Anyway, I just discovered that tip 54 will make a four-petal drop flower, in addition to all the other fancy borders and such. So, it might be a good tip to use for a quick buttercream hydrangea cake.

Maybe this would be good for lilacs, too?

Just thought I'd share because I've never considered that tip a drop flower tip before and figured there are more of you out there just like me.

I must've missed the Wilton instructions on how to make the buttercream hyrangea icon_sad.gif

Hint taken:

Either use the ball, egg, wonder mold pan (or the mini versions), or a mound of icing for the base of your hydrangea blossoms. Then, simply cover all over with tip 190 five-petal drop flowers (or tip 54 four-petal drop flowers icon_smile.gif ). Tip 127 or another large petal tip can be used for the ruffly leaves, and then simply make stems with a tip 7 or other round tip. Make sure to spatula stripe your piping bag or use two colors swirled together in your piping bag for more realistic colored blossoms.

FronkLowes, the person who made them, hasn't posted in 5 years, and this thread is 7 years old, so probably not. Maybe see if they have pictures in their gallery? Google?

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.
