White Flower Cake Shoppe Signature flower

post #1 of 103
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know how (and what tip) White Flower Cake Shoppe does their signature flowers? I love the look of them and would like to attempt to recreate them.

1st cake in the gallery is a good example of what I'm referring to.

Thanks CWR13!
I don't know why I didn't think of looking for a C-shaped tip! Do you think they just putting the curved part of the C on the cake and pulling up? I only use IMBC, do you think it would be firm enough to create this effect?

I really need to experiment with this!

These look just like the piped chrysanthemums or waterlilies on older Wilton books.

The icing has to be fairly stiff to pull out the nice petals.

I know this is a really old post, but I'm wondering if anyone's tried these large flowers yet?  I'd love to make them too.  I'm going to try and find a large 'C' tip today.

We used to make those in culinary school. Nothing tricky about them, they're just the curved piping tip used to make individual petals.

Yeahhhhh, so about that. I confidently got my piping bag full of delicious buttercream with a large Wilton C tip and went to town and I cannot figure these things out to save my life. I need a video tutorial! Haha!

This is the general idea, I'd do a smaller swirl personally, but you can use different tips to get bigger or smaller results. The basic idea is the same. there are lots of results on youtube if you do a search for "how to pipe an icing swirl" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5iQH3WUHm0

Huh. I wouldn't have guessed it was anything like that! Judging by the picture, it looked like they just put the tip down and pulled it straight up. Will give it a try!

You know, I thought "hmm, I wonder if she either didn't look at the picture or forgot or what because....ehhhhhh, I don't think so!" But didn't want to say it! Hahahahaha
