Using tip 101 and blue royal icing, pipe an elongated petal following division mark on template with wide end of tip lightly touching center of nail, narrow end pointing out and raised 1/8″ above nail surface. Squeeze bag, turn nail slowly as you move tip 1/2 in. out from center and back. Relax pressure as you return to center. Repeat for 4 more petals.
