I wanted things to go fast and wasn’t so worried about being perfect. When you pipe tear drops with thick icing they are going to look a little different. If you want them to look exactly alike you can use 15 second icing and use the template to make them precise.

If you want to make them look at each other, all you need to do is cut the patten in half and flip one of them over. You will still be able to see the pattern to pipe the birds.

Remember to send me the pictures of your birds. Tag me on Facebook or #thebearfootbaker on Instagram or send me an email. I can’t wiat to see how you make yours!
