Royal Icing Yule Log

Tonight's post is a ridiculously tiny Yule log; it's not even a Yule stick! If you'd like to see the other time I ventured into this type of thing, check out my Yule Stump (it has links to all the various elements like meringue toadstools and royal icing pine cones and needles). This mini Yule log starts life as a Royal Icing Ho-Ho; basically an inch-long line of brown icing piped from a #12 round tip, with a spiral of white icing piped at both ends with a #2 tip. 
 Pipe the mushroom caps with white icing and a #8 tip. Flatten them slightly with a fingertip after touching it to a dusting pouch filled with a 50/50 mix of powdered sugar and cornstarch.
 Sprinkle them lightly with cocoa powder.
 Pipe a few tiny green leaves with a #65 tip.
 Add a few red berries with a #3 round tip.
 Lastly, sprinkle some "snow" from your dusting pouch. A perfect dessert for your gingerbread family or perched atop a cupcake or petits fours!
