Take this cupcake step by step and you will be sure to have a beautiful outcome. Take your time and use a consitent technique all of the way around the cupcake. Flowers come in all shapes and colors so have fun.

Step 1: Use a Number 67

Use a number 67 leaf tube and make a half circle scallop around the cupcake.

Step 2: Continue Green Scallop Around Cupcake

Use a half circle motion to create the green scallop. If you cant make this pattern the goal is to cover the edge of the cupcake with green icing to frame your flower. Use your imagination to make it happen.

Step 3: Continue the Border

Continue the border around the cupcake

Step 4: Notice the Point on the Rose Tip

The skinny point of the rose tip is pointing downward. This is the tip that you are going to use to make the pedals. I wanted to show you the angle at which to hold the tip when starting the pedals. Start close to the center of the cupcake and use up small loop motion holding the tube at an angle.

Step 5: Pedals

Use the 104 rose tip and start with the small narrow point of the tip closest to the cupcake and start from the center of the cupcake and use a back and forth motion to make the pedals.
 

Step 6: Continue the Pedals

Hold the tube with your palm facing up and the tip slanted to the side. Use the skinny part of the tip closest to the cupcake.

Step 7: Finish First Layer of Pedals

Practice the motion on the side before starting on the cupcake. Using almost a skinny loop motion to create the pedals.

Step 8: Second Layer of Pedals

Do another layer of pedals on the top of the first layer.

Step 9: Middle of the Flower

Using a number 7 round tip make a small dot in the center of the cupcake

Step 10: Gold Frills

Using a number 4 round tip make lines all around the dot in the middle of the cupcake. Use your imagination and go wild. You can use whatever pattern you want. Make it your own!!

Step 11: Highlights on Top of Gold Frills

using a number 4 round tip put highlights of yellow on top the gold for a nice contrast.

Step 12: Orange Dots

Using a number 4 round tip put orange dots in the center of cupcake

Step 13: Gold Dots

Use a round tip to make gold dots over the orange dots for a beautiful highlight to the center of the cupcake.

Step 14: Finished Product

Beautiful job!!!
