I use my smallest star tip with royal icing. The more prongs on the tip, the better. thumbs_up.gif

Tip 233 would be the grass tip which I think would work with buttercream!

233 for buttercream. Garlic press for fondant if you don't have a sugar craft gun.

With fondant.



How do you get that fondant to stick to the other fondant?

At the top of the head (in the natural part) I just kindof squish it together and it just sticks. Around the back of the head and on the side if you want you can use a brush and little water it and press lightly to get it to stay secure.

I bought a clay extruder from Michaels easier to use than a cake tip.
