What icing is used for making flowers?
You can use any buttercream recipe to make these flowers, or a medium-consistency royal icing recipe will also work. Buttercream icing will harden in the refrigerator or freezer but become soft again at room temperature, while royal icing will harden completely and can be stored at room temperature indefinitely.
How do you make royal icing flowers?
Square Off Your Parchment
Attach squares of parchment or wax paper to your flower nail using a dot of icing, then pipe your royal icing flowers on the square. When you’ve finished, remove the square and place on a flat surface to dry overnight. Once dry, you can store your flowers up to two weeks.
