Step 1

Decorate with: Petal tip 104 and medium consistency icing. Hold bag at 45° at 3:00 (9:00 for lefties) with wide end of tip lightly touching surface and narrow end facing away from surface.

Step 2

As you keep the wide end against the cupcake, move wrist up to pull up icing.

Step 3

Move wrist down to complete one curl of the ruffle.

Step 4

Repeat up and down motion.

Step 5

Raise and lower the narrow end as you move around the cake. Repeat this motion for the entire ruffle.

Step 6

Hint: Moving your hand quickly up and down will give you a tight ruffle. For a looser look, move more slowly across the surface. Practice different looks to perfect your pressure control.
