1. Piping leaves and crocodiles

The theory behind the leaf and crocodile is this – when you are using your leaf piping nozzle think of it as a crocodile and rest it’s chin on the surface you are piping – you will get a perfectly piped leaf. Soft peak royal icing is most appropriate when piping leafs as well. Now that you have your beautifully piped leafs, roses and dragées (not silver or gold as Ceri explains) let’s add them all to the cake.
