How to Make a Simple Royal Icing Primrose Video
I have been promising you royal icing flowers ever since I shared the flower nail template way back in September but I never finished them. I shared a few but never completed all the flowers. It has been on my to-do list and I have tried multiple times to make the tutorials but sometimes life gets in the way. As a matter of fact, I have been promising you I will make more royal icing transfers and I have made many, many patterns but I not made the transfers yet. Well, I am back in the groove and ready to tackle things on my list. I shared the Royal Icing Daffodils yesterday so today I want to share the Royal Icing Primroses.
A royal icing primrose is a simple little flower with heart-shaped petals. I think these and the apple blossoms are my favorites to make and they work well as little accents on animal cookies and you know how I love making animal cookies like these little pigs.
Supplies to Make a Simple Royal Icing Primrose:
Begin by cutting out the ‘Primrose” flower nail template. Use a piece of double-sided tape to stick it to the top of the flower nail.
Then, add a piece of double-sided tape to the top of the primrose template.
Then, add a parchment paper square to the pattern.
Next, use a rose tip (#102,#103 or #104) with the wide end at the center of the template.
Hold the tip at a 45° angle.
Apply gentle pressure and pipe towards the edge of the flower nail while gently spinning the nail. Make the petal in a heart shape and release pressure as you return to the center.
Repeat the process until you have five petals. As you can see in the photo, I made some with four petals just to see how they would look. I like the way they turned out.
Once you have made five petals it should look like this.
Next, use decorating tip #14 to pipe a star in the center.
I like to let the flowers dry a little before I pipe the centers. I think they look a little more like stars but you can make them while the royal icing primrose is wet or after it dries for a while.
Once you add the flower, you can pipe a dot in the center or add an edible pearl.
I am a visual person and like to watch how things are made so I made you a short little video. Enjoy!
I am going to get busy and make some royal icing mums and violets and that will complete all the flowers on the nail template. I hope you stay tuned for more royal icing transfers and more flowers. I will be adding them soon.
