Step by step:
1- Take a decorating nail in one hand and a piping bag with decorating tip that looks like a teardrop, half filled with icing color of your choise in the other hand.
2- Hold the bag with the pointy side of decorating tip facing up
3- Squeeze hard to make a tall strong cylinder, if you move yiour nail side to side and it flops over try again, because it wont be solid enough to hold the weight of the rest of the icing and your rose will be lopsided
4-Spin your nail around once to make the center of the rose
5-Start making your pedals, 3 around the center next layer 5 and the next 7
6-To make your pedals spin the nail around as you squeeze the icing out up and down like an upside down “U” shape
*make sure that decorating tip’s smaller side is facing up “^” if not your rose pedals will look fat lol
And remember practice makes perfect!!! 😉
