The drop string is traditionally used as decoration on the sides of the cake and is the basis of more ornate stringwork. Called a ?drop? string because the line of piped icing is allowed to ?drop? or fall, by itself, before re-attaching it to your cake. Pipe a row of single strings or multiple strings in rows of two or three.
