I love finding new excuses to make and use black icing! Of course, you could pipe this leafless tree in brown, white, or whatever, too, but this one was definitely made with Halloween in mind! All you'll need are stiff consistency royal icing, round tips #10 and #8, a 3" flower nail and squares of parchment large enough to cover it, a glue stick, a Styrofoam block to rest the nail in, and a dusting pouch filled with a 50/50 blend of cornstarch and powdered sugar. Start by sticking the parchment to the flower nail with a dab or three from the glue stick.
royal icing headstones (or maybe put it inside a panoramic egg eyeball).
