This is how I did them. First I stripped the bag with a deep forest green, a lighter tan opposite that and then the main color of darker brown. With such a small tip, I'm still experimenting on getting all three colors to show. With a larger tip I think they would come out just perfect. I'll keep trying. Hope this helps.

That is cool looking..although I make them out of gumpaste or form into to a tear drop shape, and using a pair of small scissors or gum paste scissors and snip from above and work down the little pine cone edges. (I don't know how to descripe it) Never thought about doing it in buttercream..

And how DO you get if off the stick?

I don't take them off the stick but use the stick to place them on the cake.

I'm just not understanding about the stick. icon_redface.gif Does the stick stay in the cake? Or are you pushing it off the stick with something once it's on the cake?

I have not tried to push them off the stick. I would just leave them on and use the stick to position them at different angles.

I like these! I want to make some pinecones for a cake next month. Do you think they would work with royal icing?

Love those!!! Have you tried to make them without the stick on a flower nail or are there too many rows to be stable?
