The drop string is traditionally used as decoration on the sides of the cake and is the basis of more ornate stringwork. Called a ?drop? string because the line of piped icing is allowed to ?drop? or fall, by itself, before re-attaching it to your cake. Pipe a row of single strings or multiple strings in rows of two or three.

Create this magnificant rose?the most popular icing flower of them all. With practice, your roses will have the just-picked look of real fresh garden roses!

The Shell is the most popular icing technique of all. It's the basis for many borders, fleurs de lis and more. Lift the tip only slightly when piping to avoid a bumpy look.
