Frost 1/4 sheet red velvet in buttercream. I pipe a little buttercream in opposite corners to raise bouquet a little. I then make vine design, where I will place flowers, so you will probably not see much of that, after I place flowers…
I use tip #60 & 61 (looks like a slightly curved rose tip), for flower petals. I use 2-tone blue and blue turquoise icing for flowers. I pipe 5 or 6 petals on each flower and put #4 black center w/ #2 yellow dots around each center. I also used #131 drop flower tip in blue to fill in w/ yellow centers. I add #352 leaf tip w/ 2-tone green icing for contrast.
Added #221 (3-dot) in white and blue around flowers. Birthday message is #4 tip in blue. #18 tip in yellow & blue boarders.
Buttercream icing flowers can be so much fun! If you haven’t tried it.. please do! :)
