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.

Leaves is rated 4.625 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cakes with flowers would not be complete without leaves. Leaves are so versitile you can put them in between the flowers in different sizes and shades of greens, browns, golds, autumn colors, or colors matching the theme of your cake (or cupcakes). The trick to getting the right shape and size is at the right anglle and pressure. I always do a few on a piece of wax paper so I can see how they will look on the cake. The right consistancey of icing will make a difference as well. You can make them long, short, fat, or however you like by using the right amount of pressure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love adding leaves to flowers! They add so much to an already cute flower! Leaves take a little practice, but once you find a tip that you like then they are lots of fun to make. I created multiple leaves in fall colors to decorate a brown colored cake for Fall. I created different size leaves and it turned out adorable. The hardest part of the leaf is the point and not making the leaf too long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love leaves. I really like to use them as borders, they are so lush. The only problem I have is getting a fine point at the end of each leaf. This is another time when cornstarch can be your friend. Just dip your finger tips in your cornstarch and pinch the end of your leaf and no one will ever know! Cold water can work too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love using tip 352 for leaves. I don't always get a good sharp point when I use tip 67, but I do with 352. I also use piping gel to help add strength to my leaves. As it's been mentioned, leaves are great for filling in gaps. I also use it to cover up royal flowers with a broken petal. No one has to know.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love the look of these leaves on cakes and cupcakes. I always practice a few in my icing dish to get the feel of the icing and the needed pressure for the look I'm going for with my leaves. Have also used this tip to make ears for icing animals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You cannot have a cake filled with flowers and not have leaves. I love this tip. They make the flowers stand out more and make it so much more beautiful. Love it. I really thought they were going to be hard to do and I was wrong. Love it.
