The ball shape makes bold borders and is the first step to learn for figure piping. Vary the basic look by adding stars, dots or spirals on the ball shapes.

Pipe dots for flower centers, faces, figure piping and border effects. When making large dots, lift the tip as you squeeze to allow icing to fill out completely.

The star tip creates the most popular, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated edges of the star tip makes ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out. Use for borders, details such as buttons and facial features, flower centers, filling in cakes baked in shaped pans.
