Pretty Piped Pansies



This week's tutorial is on making a piped pansy. 
These are really easy to make and will surely enhance those spring/summer cakes.
1.  Add a square of wax or freezer paper to a flower nail using a dab of icing.  Using a rose tip #104 and holding the tip quite flat,
fat side of the tip inward, pipe two small petals. 
Starting and ending each petal at the same point.

2.  Overpipe two more petals on top of those
making them slightly smaller in size.

3.  Add three more petals to the bottom. 
(Sorry for the holes in my icing...
it was sitting in a bag for awhile and I was in a hurry :-) 
 I normally pipe all of these out of royal icing only. 
 I let them dry before placing but for this demo, I used some buttercream. 

I ADORE the Chefmaster meringue powder. 
 Believe me, if you have never tried this brand, it's the BOMB! 
 It mixes up to a slightly stiffened buttercream consistency,
doesn't melt back down and rebeats wonderfully. 

 I've tried MANY brands and this is the very best around in my opinion.

 You add enough sugar until it JUST loses it's shine in the mixer bowl. 
Good stuff :-)  Tastes GREAT, too!

4.  Taking straight Americolor and a teeny tiny brush,
paint a few lines on them. 
You also could dust some petal dust on if you want. 
The Americolor will dry. 

Then, taking a small writing tip,
make the little circle center in the middle of each flower. 

Aren't they cute?
