Closed tips, sometimes known as drop flower tips, are used to pipe star or “flower” forms directly onto cakes or cupcakes, rather of using a pastry bag. They can be piped straight or with a twist to add a little of character to the design. Also great for use as filler flowers on cakes, or for adding little bursts of color to arrangements of other flowers.

What is a drop flower tip?

That little rod prevents each segment, or petal, from combining into a single huge glob of liquid.
