It looks like it is a 1M- a large star. I like the 2D one as well- thats what I used in the cupcake bouquet in my photos. They are both super easy but use a LOT of icing!

yep, just a 1M tip I have the 2D tip as well but the 1M appears to fold over itself more and look like a rose IMO

YES this is what they look like.


Just wanted to add too, that the mini bouquets turned out good. The customer was VERY happy.

I hot glued the mini 1 oz. cups all together, about 30 of them total for each bouquet. I used a 7" metal pail (provided by customer) and then used a skewer and poked a tiny hole in the center of each cup and then stuck a toothpick in the hole. The toothpick was REALLy tight in the hole and didn't budge. Then I took a mini cupcake, and attached it to the top of my flower nail with a smudge of icing and piped a full rose right on top of it

Then put the cupcakes in the freezer for about 20 min. until the icing was nice and firm.
Then I poked a hole in the cc liner with a skewer and put the cupcake down into the cup letting the toothpick go through the hole in the liner and up iinto the cupcake.

I flipped one of the fully assembled bouquets (I had to make 7 of them) completely upside down and held it for a count of 3 and not ONE cupcake budged! It was very sturdy.

Also, I figured out a brilliant way to transport them (since that is always an issue) I took a foam paper plate and cut a hole in the center just big enough to fit the bottom of the bouquet pail. Then flipped the plate upside down so that it was raised up in the center. Then I used hot glue around the very rim of the plate (low temp. glue so it doesn't shrivel the plate) and secured it to the bottom of a box. Then I was able to just set the bouquet within the ring created by the plate and it was very sturdy, the bouquets didn't move a centimeter whatsoever! I put 5 in a huge computer box (arranged like the dots on a dice, 1 in each corner and 1 in the center)
and then put the other 2 bouquets in another smaller box and just put plastic wrap over the top of the boxes, worked perfectlly.

Can you tell me how you get your frosting to look so perfect? Do you start piping from the inside and work your way out or outside working in? Not with your roses (they are perfect a lovely!) but with your 1M tip? Mine don't look that nice. Thanks!

Wow! Thanks for this! Now I just need to source out the cups here in UK.

For the swirl roses, I build up a little in the middle first then swirl from center out. HTH icon_wink.gif
