Start by filling a piping bag with your frosting. I used a #104 tip from Wilton. I like to use my plastic scraper to get the frosting nice a tight and into the tip.
Start with the fat side down and pipe your first petal.
It should look like this.
Then pipe all around the cupcake in a single layer of petals
Do the same thing on top of the first round, but a little shorter.
Then, for the third layer, turn the tip a little more up and down and make little short petals.
Then top with sprinkles or little pearly dragees.
They are so easy and turn out beautiful.
