Piping Instructions:

Hydrangeas - Use Wilton 1M star tip in piping bag. Add 3 different colors for depth (Sugar & Charm used light pink, creamy orange, and white). Hold tip down to cupcake and pipe large petals all around until the surface of the cupcake is completely covered.

Carnations - Add buttercream frosting to the bag using a Wilton 100 ruffled tip. Make sure tip is sideways, then start in the center of the cupcake and pipe around. To get that carnation effect, make sure the frosting is sticking up like a ribbon.

Mums - Use Wilton 102 tip in piping bag, then add a color of your choice! Start on the outer edge and work your way in. Face your piping tool towards the cupcake. Pipe up and down while spinning cupcake. Overlap petals for the perfect mum!
