HOW TO MAKE ‘GRASS’ ICING ON CUPCAKES
1. Fill 3/4 decorating bag with green icing and attach a Wilton #233 tip.
2. Hold the decorating bag straight up and squeeze to create a glass blade.
3. Immediately after squeezing pull up and away when the icing strand is about 1/2 inch. Stop squeezing and pull tip away.
4.  Be sure to keep the strands together so none of the cupcake shows through.
5.  NOTE: for a more natural grass look, you can pull the tip slightly to the left or right.
