An impressive, yet quick and easy technique you can perfect on the first try! The lacy texture of sotas looks great in covering cakes, outlined areas and as a background for flowers.


Difficulty: Somewhat Easy


Step 1

Fit decorating bag with round decorating tip 1 and fill no more than 1/4 full with thin consistency icing.

Step 2

Hold the bag at a 90° angle, with the tip 1/2 to 1 inch above the surface.

Step 3

Squeeze the bag allowing the icing to drop randomly in a series of overlapping loops.

Step 4

Cover area edge-to-edge. Stop pressure and pull tip away.

Step 5


Use only a small amount of thinned icing in the decorating bag; this puts less pressure on your hands.

The harder you squeeze the decorating bag, and the slower you move the bag, the curvier your piped lines will be.
