Brush Embroidery:
Fill your tipless bag, cut the tip #2 size, with Stiff consistency royal icing. to achieve a beautiful ruffled edge begin by touching the tip to cookie’s surface, at 45° angel, Squeeze the tipless bag, 
simultaneous lift the bag allowing gravity to help the icing fall correctly, then touch the surface again creating the ruffle edge! Continue to pipe the brush embroidery scales until the top of the tail.
After piping each scale dip the brush into the cooled boiled water, blot the brush on to the paper towel, being mindful the brush remains slightly damped. Using the side of the flat brush, brush the royal icing in the direction of form!
