Heyyyy!!! I'm trying something a bit outside my comfort zone! Piping flowers!!
I'm obsessed with Molly Yeh (WHO ISN'T?!!), and finally felt brave enough to try my hand at piping a few of my own flowers out of frosting. Honestly, it was easier than I thought, although it is time consuming! I love that there is really no risk here besides wasting your own time. Ha! And I'm obviously not scared of that! Now, I'm not offering a full flower tutorial here (yet!!), since I'm still such a newbie. But I watched a lot of youtube videos, practiced a lot, and just scraped the ones I didn't like back into the bowl of frosting. Win! Seriously, pipe a bunch onto parchment, and just redo them as you find a technique that works for you. The hardest part is keeping your frosting at the right consistency, so doing this on a super hot day is a no no unless you have A/C! (Or unless you're a late night baker like I am...haha!). If you're frosting starts losing shape, then simply pop it back in the fridge to firm up a bit.Read More
