Project Instructions

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.

Relax pressure as you pull the tip toward you, drawing the leaf to a point.

Stop squeezing and lift away.


Adult supervision is required at all times.
