One of the simplest techniques for decorating with fondant is to create cut-outs. Fondant shapes can be applied to lay at on the surface of a treat or dried so that they hold their shape when used as a topper.

The grass tip creates the most celebrated, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated edges of the grass tip makes ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out. Our step-by-step video shows you how!

Create interesting color combinations and dimension by layering fondant cut-outs.
