Maybe some more info would help? Are you making it on a cake out of icing? Fondant?
If it's out of icing, a grass tip might work.
If you are making it out of fondant, a garlic press works well (not used for garlic, though! ew! icon_wink.gif
Hard to answer without a few more details...

Oops! I guess alot more information would help! ha! It is a lion made out of modeling chocolate about 4" high. I tried the garlic press, but didn't like the outcome. I thought I would cover the head with modeling chocolate then maybe snip the ends with scissors. Any thoughts? Thanks for the response.

I guess it depends on the look you are going for - more cartoony, or realistic, or looking like a specific pattern? Hmm....will be interesting to see what others come up with! Sorry I can't be more help!
