I'm making a garden scene cake for my sister's b-d. Going to cover with green fondant and have the white fondant fencing around and chocolate cookie vegetable patch. My question is how do you make the appearance of grass -- I had thought I read where someone used a garlic press. Or is it a pastry bag tip? I can use either frosting or fondant so any method/approach will help. Thanks everybody

There's an actual grass tip you can use with buttercream. Not sure of the number off the top of my head. 334 or something? I know people also use clay extruders for fondant. hth
