  1. Once you've reached the desired length, stop applying pressure and swiftly detach the piping nozzle.


  1. Repeat steps 2 to 3, piping a first layer of six petals.


  1. Repeat steps 2 to 4, piping another layer of six slightly shorter petals, positioning the second layer between the first layer of petals.
