Use tip 2 or 3 and individually pipe each blade of grass!

I just saw a good idea in one of Debbie Brown's books - pressing the star tip into fondant repeatedly to give a grassy appearance. It works on fondant so why not give it a try in buttercream? Dip it in and "pull" up the blades.

Or a rough layer of frosting with just the occasional bunch of blades sticking up.

I guess it depends on the cake!

Good luck!

Use a leaf tip to cover a lot of ground, just pipe them straight up. Then fill in with the round tips maybe.

I mean if the area is colored green already, if you just do groups of three blades of grass, you got the point across.

On Ace of Cakes (for the Harry Potter cake) they spread green icing in a thin sheet, let it dry, then crumbled it and covered trees with it. I don't know how fast it is but it's another idea.
