I can't find my grass tip 233, is there some other tip I can use to make grass.. Someone please help quick.
Use tip 2 or 3 and individually pipe each blade of grass!
Oh my, that will take forever!
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!
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.
Thanks for the ideas
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.
