Flower Petal Cupcakes

You want to use a rose tip for this one.  I used a butter knife to put streaks of color up the sides of an icing bag and then filled it with yellow.

With the wide end down, pipe 1/3 circles (think rainbows) onto the cupcake to make a petal.  Start a little further in around the edge, curve out, and then curve back in to end the petal (piping with as constant pressure applied as possible, unless you want wave petals).  You can make them lay down or stand up depending on your icing stiffness and how you lay your tip.

Do these  petals around the entire cupcake, building layers on each other as you work your way in.

Finish with an edible pearl or sixlet.

Happy crafting!
