Just lovely! Which tip did you use for the red and blue?

I used a #3 tip, however you could use a #5 tip with less pressure also. To give perspective, this was a relatively small cake--an 8" round.

I love this design. I will have to try it :-)

Thank you--it can be made with other colors like bright pink, orange, and light green and it looks like spring flowers :-)
