How do I make buttercream hyacinth flowers?

post #1 of 5

I wanted to find a less time-consuming way to make hyacinth, rather than making them from gumpaste, and I found this picture of what looks like buttercream flowers. Any tips on how to get that effect?

it's a leaf tube piped with a striped bag of icing (is it the 952 or something?)

 

i'd lay a stripe of green icing on the cake as if it were the stem

 

this will give the rounded look

 

when you pipe the starburst designs on top of it

 

start the starbursts around the sides then up the middle last

maybe it's 352

 

it looks like a v shape--not the 67 type

 

you can flatten the tip of a parchment cone and cut this tip too, snip the tip off in both directions

 

making a v shaped point--works great

Hyacinths have 6 points.  Use an Ateco #844 pastry tube to make drop type flowers without twisting. Freeze or air dry and then apply them to heaps of the same icing above the leaves.
