Any idea what tip I could use to make fish scales using buttercream?

I am making a 3D fish using the sports ball pan and instead of piping stars all over I thought it would look cute to try making it look like scales.

The cake is for a one year old, so a cutsie look would be okay as opposed to a realistic looking fish.

The leaf tip (#70) or the rose tip (#104) would work if you did the curving motion, as if you were piping a rounded petal shape. (I'd go with the leaf tip though, probably much faster!) thumbs_up.gif
