The Zigzag is a popular way to fill in outlined areas, perfect for ribbed sweater and cuff effects. You can also use tight zigzags to cover the entire side of your cake—they look great!

Characters or designs are often outlined first, then piped in with stars or zigzags. Outlines can also be used for facial features.
