What a great look you can achieve when you flow in dots, swirls or other designs to wet color flow sections. The design dries into your iced top for a more exciting treat.

Your homemade cupcakes will be even more tempting when you add a pretty peak of icing on top! We used tip 2A here, but any large round tip will work.

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.
