it also gets called the fur tip or wilton 233. you will probably be able to find it online somewhere (where i am in the uk, the cake shops dont stock it - yours might), at least on ebay.

if you have a thin writing tip, then you can do it strand by strand - will take a long time though!

depending on the design, could you use fondant? its nto too tricky to cut a spikey border for the edge of the cake.

Thanks for all your help.
Having finally finished sorting through over 200 tips, I have found a grass tip. Its a stodgy plastic one but itll do..
Thanks again icon_biggrin.gif
