Create the ‘grass’ around the ball.

Step 4

Using the grass icing tip #233, hold your tip at an almost 90-degree angle. Start the grass closest to your soccer ball and work outward. Set your tip close to the cupcake and soccer ball and begin to gently squeeze. Pull up and away, and remove the pressure to the bag when the grass is to the desired length. Begin your next cluster of grass close to the previous cluster.

Keep creating grass around the cupcake, working from the center out, until it is completely covered.
