Prepare the decorating bag with desired tip; each tip listed will create a different size and style of leaf. Fill bag 1/2 full with medium consistency buttercream (thin slightly with corn syrup). Squeeze hard to build up the base and, at the same time, lift the tip slightly. The bag is at a 45° angle at 6:00. Lightly touch surface with wide opening parallel to surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'Piece of cake' when adding this icing to your cake! It's very easy to do with only a little practice. Very effective, makes all the difference to the flowers on your cake. I also have put some on wires to add to a bouquet of roses - with royal icing of course. Easy and effective.
