Hey everybody, I am new to the site and to serious decorating. I am making a Dora cake for my daughters birthday and can't find my grass tip!! What would be the next best tip to use for the same effect? or would it be worth it to RUN out and get a new one? thanks

In my opinion, if it's possible, I would run out and get a new one. Your end result is worth it. Good luck

I would also go try to find one. I know our local Walmart sells them. The only other thing if that isn't really an option for you is to make a TON of little pieces of "grass" with a 3-4 tip. That would take way longer than driving a couple hours to find one though icon_wink.gif (Maybe you know someone that has decorated a cake before that might have one to borrow??)

I cant find a grass tip anywhere in the U.K and no one seems to know what im after. so i make my grass in different ways, painting, piping with a thin round nozzle and making tiny cone shapes from fondant. it does take forever though. im working on a grass cake now and would kill for a wilton grass tip!! good luck
