Filling the Decorating Bag


Step 1

Pipe rows and clusters of strings, beads, scallops, even grass and hair!

Step 2

With an angled spatula, fill the bag with approximately 1/2 cup of icing. Note: It is important not to overfill the bag; otherwise, excess icing may squeeze out the wrong end.

Step 3

Remove icing from the spatula by squeezing the bag with your thumb and fingers against the spatula and pulling spatula out.

Step 4

Close the bag by unfolding the cuff and twisting the bag closed. This forces the icing down into the bag.

Step 5

Make sure you release any air trapped in bag by squeezing some of the icing out of the tip into the bowl. This is called "burping" the bag.
