Chaka, what's the difference between the 402 and the 403 (it's kind of hard to tell by the pictures on Wilton)?  Are they the same shape, just one's bigger?  Which one's bigger?

 

I'll let you know how it goes when I try it.  :)

The 403 is MUCH bigger. I don't know if you can see from this picture on Amazon, I looked up #402 but if you scroll down a bit it also shows the 403. Hope you can view it.

Here's another pic of #403 on Amazon. This one says is an Ateco brand. I think that's what mine is. And yes, it's the same basic shape as the 402 just a lot bigger. Look around and you may find better pricing elsewhere. It's the shipping that costs ya.

403's the same, just bigger. Wilton tips are numbered sequentially so the larger ones are also larger in size. I think Ateco's the same way.

Stiff buttercream and a pulling squeezing motion are what you need.

I saw this today on White Flower Cake Shoppe's facebook page. They will be offering a kit of piping tips and from the picture, I can see that the tip on the far right is a #403. The post is from today, February 19, so you may have to scroll down a bit. It looks like a black bag with pink and white dots.

I think they use that style of tip in various sizes depending on the size cake/cupcake.

Chaka, thanks so much for telling us.  The 403 is the one that I bought, yay, just waiting for it to come in the mail now.  :)

I wonder what they mean by custom
Order? I wonder if it IS the 403 or what! :/

It certainly looks like the Ateco 403 tip.  Maybe they put that they custom ordered it because it's so hard to find.  Plus if they say that they custom-ordered it, more people will buy their kit.  I so hope it's the 403 tip.  As soon as I get it, I'll try it out and let you know how it works.

If you have a 402, like I do, just pry it open a little wider.  It makes a HUGE difference!!  I'm going to wait to order the tip they actually use and I'll come back and report what it is, exactly! ;)

AivaCake, I just bought the Wilton 402 tip today.  What do you mean by pry it open?  Lengthwise or wider?  I guess not wider right, because you wouldn't really want a thicker petal?

 

I thought this tip would be bigger, so I'm glad I bought the 403 tip online... still waiting for that one to come by mail.  I can't wait to try it out!

Like this. When I kept it tighter together, it created a very thin petal that wouldn't curve as much. This was my first time and it doesn't look exact but I thought it was close!

Lauren - Your cupcakes look great!  I ordered the 403 tip from Amazon, and it does have a fairly wide opening - maybe 3/16ths of an inch (just under 1/4").

 

Look forward to having the time to try it out!

Thank you! Yes, the wide tip makes a ton of difference! It's all in the wrist, and the consistency makes a bit difference! You'll have to curve your wrist like you're making a "C" but staring from the bottom and overlap the petals. Otherwise they'll fall.

Hey Lauren - Just thought I would share a find on Pinterest tonight . . . this same style flower made in royal icing.

Sorry this pic is so big.  I have to make some royal icing next week for some other decos, so I'll give this a shot and let you know how it turns out!

Aaaah! That's beautiful! Was there a tutorial?  I want to watch someone make it SLOWLY so I can figure out how to move my hand/wrist! LOL  The girls at the WFCS said they plan on making a video on how to do it soon, but I don't know what soon means in their book! haha
