Decorate cupcakes. Prepare three decorating bags with tip 402 and fill with tinted icing. Try each of these:

  • Crimson Pull-Out Cupcake (top row, left): With bag positioned at 90° and tip lightly touching the cupcake, squeeze and pull up to desired height. Stop squeezing and pull away. Repeat to cover cupcake in icing.
  • Bright and Bold Poinsettia Cupcake (top row, middle): Position bag at 45° angle with curve down. With one end of tip lightly touching cupcake top, use pull-out technique to pipe one petal, relaxing pressure and pulling away to complete petal. Repeat around edge of cupcake, followed by another row of petals overlapping the first.
  • Crimson Double Ruffle Cupcake (top row, right): Hold bag with curve of tip down, lightly touching surface. Using up and down zig-zag motion, pipe row of ruffles around edge of cupcake, followed by another row of ruffles overlapping the first.

  • Caribbean Reef Closed Petal Cupcake (middle row, right): With bag positioned at 45° angle and curve of tip up, lightly touching edge of cupcake, move tip out slightly as you turn cupcake to form petal. Relax pressure as you move back to starting point. Stop and pull away. Pipe one row of petals around edge of cupcake, followed by another row of petals overlapping the first.
  • Bright and Bold Petal Flower Cupcake (bottom row, left): With bag positioned at 45° angle curve of tip down, lightly touching middle of cupcake, squeeze and pull back to form open petal. Pipe one row of petals around edge of cupcake, followed by another row of petals overlapping the first.

Ruffles add a decorative top border to your cakes or cupcakes. Pipe ruffles around plaques or to trim doll dresses or bonnets.

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!
