I have an order for a birch style wedding cake with pine cones and acorns. Was playing around last night trying to figure out the best way to do them. So far I think using scissors to snip is my best bet. Is there a better way? Or a way with the scissors that works best? Any help would be so appreciated!

hmm i would probably make a textured ribbon with the one side cut to look like pine cone pieces and wrap it around a base. then put another layer and so forth and so on. because thats kind of how they are on the pine cone. Might give you a better result than snipping a big piece.
