Piped Royal Icing Fir Trees

How to Make Royal Icing Fir Trees

There are many different ways to make realistic looking fir trees for gingerbread houses.

Here is one way of making fir trees that involves piping in circles onto a piece of parchment or wax paper, pulling the tip outwards to make branches. It helps to do this on top of turntable. I don’t use a leaf tip for this although you could if you wanted to. I just cut the tip of the parchment paper cone into a V shape.

After every few layers, it’s important to let the trees dry for an hour or two so that they don’t collapse.

To pipe pointy tips of the trees, use a small star tip and position the bag vertically.
