Make a simple, versatile leaf to add realistic details to flowers. Leaf tips can also be used to make simple flowers, such as sunflowers.

Perfect for classic borders or cloudlike decorations, dots are a versatile technique that can be piped in a range of sizes. The dot technique can be used as a simple border for cakes and cookies, as well as for icing cupcakes or piping meringues.

Characters or designs are often outlined first, then piped in with stars or zigzags. Outlines can also be used for facial features.

Bonnet Season Cupcakes is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this idea. Instead of fondant for the bonnets I made sugar cookies for the brim, and added a smaller circle sugar cookie for the higher part of the hat. I used tip 47 to make ribbon frosting around the smaller cookie, and then added violets, apple blossoms and rosebuds and leaves. They were a hit with everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made these for easter and mother;s day. This was the first time I use fondant and it was fun and easy to do. I will make this again as alot of people like them and thought they were great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made these for a family reunion held on Easter weekend-they turned out really cute! Became more creative as I progressed-even to making "feathers" and other little touches. Everyone loved them! Try using a malted milk ball or another round or square candy for the bowl of the hat to make them more edible and "kid-friendly"!
