Pipe flowers with a simple straight up motion. Used sparingly, star drop flowers make delicate accents (especially those made with smaller tips) and are also great fill-in decorations. Using different tips will create different flower effects. Tip 1B is perfect for making hydrangeas, whereas tip 225 creates delicate blossoms.

  1. Using a decorating bag fitted with a drop flower tip, hold the bag straight up, with the tip just touching the surface.
  2. Squeeze and let the icing build to form a flower. Use light pressure to form a small flower; add more pressure to form a bigger flower.
  3. Stop squeezing before pulling tip away. Pipe a center if desired using tip 2, 8 or 18.
