I go to a place called Rose Cottage and we're having a 'Sisterhood Day' on the weekend, I want to do a cake to take, and I'd like to put the Rose Cottage symbol on the top.
The roses are no problem, but I'd like to do the pentacle in a 'branch' design. I thought about a frozen buttercream transfer, but I think it would look better being more dimensional.

So what would be the best icing tip (I have wilton tips) or what else would work? thank you princess.gif

I probably would use tip #233. It has many small holes so it pipes 'grass' wellicon_smile.gif To use, hold the bag straight up & down and use short bursts of pressure to pipe out 'strings'of icing. If you pull up while squeezing, it will be long.
Practice 1st - on paper or something; then you can see how much pressure you need. Scrape it up & use again & again.
