So, we’re going to be be using this tip right her, it’s your basic star tip. What you want to do is again fill your piping bag half way, I’ve used pink italian butter cream to make it look more authentically like a rose and so, what you’re going to do is start directly in the center, you want to pipe a swirl around once and twice and just lift up your tip and as you can see it looks just like a rose. It’s very simple, takes about two second and it’s a much more easy technique than piping with a rose tip.
