Ice bear cakes smooth; build up muzzle with tip 5. Trace pattern with toothpick.

Pipe tip 5 dot nose and eyes; pipe tip 3 glint in eyes and string mouth. Pipe tip 7 bead bottom borders.
Imprint message using individual press letters without bar; pipe in with tip 3. Position bear cake on round cakes.
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.
Add that special touch to your cake with your special someone´s name.
