          What You Need

          Instructions

          1. Create Your Design


          You’ll want to start by planning out your composition, so either print out photos of tropical leaves you like, or draw your own onto paper and cut them out. Then, use a scriber tool to trace them directly onto your buttercream, being sure to vary the size and placement.

          2. Pipe the Outlines

          Using varying shades of green buttercream and a piping bag fitted with the number 3 tip, outline each of the leaves.

          3. Fill ‘Em In


          Fill in the leaves using up-and-down and zig-zag motions with your piping bag to mimic stitching. Finish each one by piping a line down the center for the stem.

          Fill in your cake with smaller, free-handed leaves between the large ones that you sketched out, if needed.

          Let your cake set, then serve and enjoy!
