Prepare your royal icing according to the directions of your favorite royal icing recipe. Color your icing using gel food coloring and load it into a decorating bag. To add a shaded effect to your flowers, load two different shades of icing into the same decorating bag.

Step 2:

When youíre ready to begin piping your flowers, add a square of wax paper to your flower nail, sticking it in place with a touch of icing or a piece of double-sided tape. Start by piping a small circle in the center. Donít worry if it doesnít look pretty, you are going to be stacking flower petals on top of it.

Step 3:

Next, beginning just inside the edge of the piped circle, apply pressure to your piping bag and pull outward, make a u-turn back towards the center when you reach the edge of your flower nail. Release the pressure as you get to the center point where you started your petal. Continue around the circle repeating this process until you have a complete circle of petals.

Gently remove the wax paper from your flower nail and set your icing flower aside until it is completely dry. I like to lay my icing flowers out on a cookie sheet overnight protected by a mesh food cover.
