This technique is particularly popular with wedding cookie art , cupcake art and cake art. Although brush embroidery is pretty straight forward and quite forgiving you will need to understand royal icing consistencies. Shaded brush embroidery consist of brushing the tones, I choose to use ombre effect, through the entire design. I than over-pipe a Lambeth Method ornate scroll to add a touch of elegance.If you need a refresher on the consistencies please watch Working with Royal Icing.

Steps of Shade Brush Embroidery
Outline the design with a tipless or pastry bag and small round decorating tip, I use a 1/2 to size large nozzle for the outside line.
Pipe in a zigzag motion with the darker color following the outside line with 1/2 size smaller nozzle.
Damp a paintbrush to pull the edges of the design inward, to achieve shade brush embroidery.
As you brush the design take care not to brush through the outline as you create delicate strokes inside the design.
Color the Icing:
For the lightest colour add 1/4 toothpick of magenta.
For the darker colour use 1/2 toothpick of magenta.
For the hip and stem use 1/2 toothpick moss green.
For the ivory use 1/2 toothpick of the ivory.
Remember to color your icing prior to bringing the icing to the correct consistency.
You will need to fill :
One filled with light magenta off-peak icing and fitted with #2.5 nozzle
One filled with dark magenta off-peak icing and fitted with #2 nozzle
One filled with moss green off-peak icing and fitted with #2.5 nozzle
Again you will need 3 bags filled soft-peak consistency
Fit one bag with #1 nozzle, #2 nozzle, and #3 nozzle.
