In this segment, we're gonna create our pine cone trees using plain ice cream cones, pointed ice cream cones, and we've got our same green icing with our leaf tip number 352. The leaf tip is a V shape, and if you hold the V to the side, that's the correct position it should be in. Starting at the bottom you squeeze, a lot of pressure, and then release. As you stop pressure you pull away. Squeezing and stop your pressure, then pull away, working all the way around the cone. Once you get this bottom layer done you can set it down, or continue to hold it. Whatever you're comfortable with. Just try to fill in all the blank spaces. I have some sprinkles on the side too that I'll try to sprinkle them with so they look like decorated Christmas trees. Just keep going until you've got the cone completely covered. I give my bag a squeeze, and push some icing down. Keep that rag nearby to clean your tip from time to time. Of course as you get closer to the top, you're gonna have to set it down. I like to be able to see under it so I tend to keep wanting to pick it up. I'm gonna sprinkle it with these sprinkles before I put the finishing touches on the top. See how pretty they look?, like real Christmas trees. And that's how you make a pine cone Christmas tree.
