I tried to contact _ChristyB_ about how to make these flames, but I haven't heard back yet. Can anyone help me figure out what tip she used and how to get the multicolor effect? It looks like maybe a leaf tip. I need to make the flames considerably bigger though, is there a large leaf tip?

I appreciate any help,

Strip a bag with yellow and orange buttercream, then using tip #352 pipe the flames. Also known as leaves if using green - this is very easy to do. Good luck!

I think you got it. Im gonna say that it is a leaf tip with the two colors in the pipping bag

Make a batch of yellow, orange and red icing. Then you will add all 3 into one bag. I put them each into their own bag 1st and then squeeze them all at the same time into another larger bag so that they all go in evenly and together.

It looks like she used a leaf tip and yes, there should be a larger leaf tip. I also like tip 18 as well.
I hope that helps.

Thanks. Okay, so stripe the bag. Isn't tip 18 a ruffle tip?

18 is a star tip, I like to use it for the flames.
