I use the "grass" tip. I don't remember the number but can look it up if you need it.

and thanks everyone for the tip #. I actually have that one but wasn't sure what it was for! The grater is also an awesome idea too! Thanks!!!

Do you guys think the tip would work to make hair strands too?

I use melted chocolate in 3 different colors of green and pipe (disposable bag with no tip) onto wax paper. When it hardens I break into big chunks and place on cake. HTH icon_smile.gif

For "strandy" grass, I use a grass tip, or a garlic press. For overall grassy effect (to cover a cake board, etc.) I put green fondant down in patches then use a star tip to rough it up. Then I go back over it and "paint" it with vodka and different shades of green food coloring. Example in pictures below:
