Hi Cakers!

I have tip number 233. My BC is on the thin side. Is there any other tricks with making nice and natural looking grass?

Suggestions?

Thanks,
Michael

If it comes out all globby and not stringy add some powdered sugar to thicken the b'cream up a bit.
Just use that tip; hold it about 1/4" away from the cake and let the icing flow out. Short, quick squirts, pulling up and away as you stop squeezing.

Hi Michael,
Tip 233 is the grass tip or a #18 star can also be used. Hope this helps... icon_wink.gif

Michael,
I'm the same way...a visual learner. Usually show me once, maybe twice and I'm good to go. That's why I love youtube! thumbs_up.gif

I use quite stiff BC to pipe grass & like to cover cake boards with grass!
