Put your number right in the middle.
With really thick royal icing & tip #81 (curved side up) pipe a
plus sign making each side equal in length.
Pipe 4 more equal length segments in between the 4 arms of the plus sign.
Fill the entire bottom with long segment, then start overlapping with shorter segments
until you have about 4 layers on top of eachother. Then simply fill in the top with
short segments to make the mum look full.
Place 3-6 colored sugar pearls in the center. Remember don't spend a bunch
of money on buying sugar pearls in every color of the rainbow, you can easily
make a variety of colors by following my tutorial.
Happy Baking, Happier Eating!
