Move tip up 3/8 in. and use tip 366 and light green icing to pipe a row of shell-motion leaves, followed by a row of medium green icing shell-motion leaves. Repeat, alternating icing colors to pipe rows of shell-motion leaves and cover cake sides.

The Shell is the most popular icing technique of all. It's the basis for many borders, fleurs de lis and more. Lift the tip only slightly when piping to avoid a bumpy look.

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