I was talking to a cookie friend of mine the other day and she had a great idea. She asked if I knew how to use certain tips the proper way. Well, I have taken a few cake classes in my day but I am not an expert, but I do want to share what I have learned with you. I also like to experiment with tips so I will let you know how those turn out. Let’s start with the rose tip. Did you know the rose tip isn’t just for roses? You can use it for a great textured tree.
I made this little guy for a Christmas set but didn’t have time to post it. It is the perfect example of using a tip in a new way to achieve a certain texture on your cookie. Who knew a rose tip would be good for making trees?
Supplies for The Rose Tip Tree:
Green Outline Icing
Light Brown Outline Icing
Dark Brown Outline Icing
White Icing (thicker than flood but not as thick as outline)
White Disco Dust
Rose Tip #102
This technique is really easy and all you need is the rose tip and the green outline icing. I prefer to use a bag instead of a bottle for this technique because it allows me to control the pressure for the best results.
Apply pressure to create a small mound of icing. Decrease the pressure as you slowly pull the bag away from the mound and end the leaf with a quick pull to create a point.
Sprinkle with Disco Dust and you are all done!
I hope this tip works for you. Don’t be afraid to try something new with your tips to achieve a texture you need. I have a lot of tips planned for the future so stop by and check them out.
