Using classic fleurs de lis as a topiary for tiny drop flowers is an elegant and creative touch that will help your cake stand apart.

A fun, casual flower found in a variety of colors. Can be a single cut-out or multi-layered flower, flat or cupped, positioned directly on the cake arranged in a group as a bouquet.

The bead shape makes impressive borders outlines and accents on letters and designs; also a cute trim on clothing and gingerbread houses. The basis for making piped hearts and figure piping.

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.

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