Carrots is rated 4.6521739130434785 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My good friend loves carrot cake, so I made one for a special occasion. I designed a garden, and used this carrot technique to make it look "realistic". I made rows of carrots in the ground, basically using the concept but at a 90 degree angle. Then, using this technique, I made a stack of "picked carrots" to the side. The carrots stacked beautifully, and the cake looked great. My friend was very touched and guests thought the decoration was original, and it was, Thanks to this tip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used this technique to decorate sugar cubes for spring teas, using smaller tips of course. They look absolutely adorable, and always make my table brighter than it would otherwise be. I would suggest using royal frosting instead of buttercream if you plan to stack the sugar cubes in a sugar bowl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Mom loves carrot cake, so for her 67th birthday, with her friends at the bowling alley, I made 2 cakes; one I put the carrots on them so that each piece would have a carrot. On the other cake, I made the border out of carrots and had the Happy Birthday in the middle. They were a hit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used this technique several times. Gives that extra special touch to carrot cupcakes. I have also used it on carrot cake squares and when i make a big carrot cake I have made lots of little ones around the cake to brighten it up. Everyone thinks I took a lot of time on them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made my carrot cupcakes look perfect AND finished. The directions were easy to follow, but I chose to use the leaf tip instead of the multi-opening tip. I just find that one easier to use.
