Buttercream icing (medium consistency)
Fit decorating bag with decorating tip and fill 1/2 full or less with medium consistency icing.
Starting at the bottom of the cursive “e,” hold the decorating bag at a 45° angle at 3:00 (9:00 for left-handed decorators). Touch tip to surface and squeeze so that icing attaches, then with tip slightly above surface squeeze out icing with even pressure, moving tip up to the right (left for left-handed decorators)...
To end, stop pressure, pull tip away.
Hints:If you have to stop on your border to change positions, push in your tip at the end of the “e” and continue piping to keep a smooth look.
You can vary the look of the e-motion border by making tight e´s or stretched e’s.
E-motion is shorter and rounder than loops.
