A variety of leaves will help give your cakes a more realistic garden feel. Add piping gel to your icing to help keep your leaves from breaking.

The star tip creates the most celebrated, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated edges of the star tip make ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out. Because fill in requires so much piping from the same bag, keep replenishing icing in bag.
