Royal Icing Recipe


1. Looking down on your flower nail, imagine dividing the nail as follows: Note that the flower should be the size of the inner circle. 2. Using your tip 103 make the first hert shaped petal (depicted at the upper left corner of picture below) by sqeezing your piping bag slightly at a 45 degree angle from center to circle edge. At this point continue piping along the edge while gently using a gentle back and forth motion in the middle as you spin your flower nail slowly and proceeding to close the petal. Relax pressure, stop and slide out.
3. Repeat to make four more heart shaped petals (for a total of five).

4. Add a small star center with tip 14.

5. Add a small dot to the top of the star with Tip 1.

6. Dry in medium flower former.
