MAKING FLOWERS, ETC.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I AM NEW AT THIS AND WANT TO TRY AND MAKE FLOWERS, DESIGNS ON MY UPCOMING CAKES. CAN I USE REGULAR ICING FOR THIS OR DO I NEED TO USE SOMETHING LIKE ROYAL ICING. I REALLY WANT THE DECORATIONS TO BE EDIBLE AND NOT HARD. LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING. THANK YOU!

you can make flowers with regular icing depending on what kind of flower you want. just use a stiff icing so the flowers hold their shape.

I wanted to start with simply flowers - roses look so hard to make.
Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Debbie

You could do drop flowers. These are very easy. What do you think?

I also am lefthanded, I wonder if this has something to do with the fact that I am not too adept at the flowers myself. If anyone has any leftie tips or tricks to help out, please let me know! Also I have tons of books on making flowers is there any one that someone knows is tried and true..or just a very good one?
