2. Add a few drops of green food coloring to the frosting. Beat or mix together the frosting and the food coloring until the color is saturated. Add a drop of black food coloring in order to make the darker pine color. This is completely optional. You can make it as deep or light green as you wish.

3. Place a “grass” or “hair” style tip onto your piping bag using standard couplings. If you can’t find this tip you can also substitute a star tip.

5. Pipe along the rim of the cone and secure it onto a small piece of parchment paper or wax paper. This will make it easier to decorate as it won’t slide around so much. Once finished, you can move it around by the paper and transfer it onto other surfaces with ease.

6. Pipe along the bottom of the cone, looking to fill in all of the space so that you can’t see any of the cone. You can make the strands longer or shorter based on how fast you pull the piping bag away from the cone. You can choose based on your personal preference.
