Icing The Icing

I used icing sugar, a piping bag and a 1.5mm nozzle to add some extra decoration to the Icing Christmas Trees, that I'd cut out yesterday. I decided to stick with white icing as it really stands out from the green background. I also stuck the yellow stars on the top of some of the trees with a blob of the icing.

I didn't have any particular design in mind when I started to pipe so some patterns have turned out better than others. The overall effect is quite striking though so that's good.
Not so good - my hand is killing me from squeezing the piping bag for a couple of hours. Ow ow ow. Oh well, no pain no gain etc.
