The Shell is the most popular icing technique of all. It's the basis for many borders, fleurs de lis and more. Lift the tip only slightly when piping to avoid a bumpy look.

The Zigzag is a popular way to fill in outlined areas, perfect for ribbed sweater and cuff effects. You can also use tight zigzags to cover the entire side of your cake—they look great!

The rosette has the tight, swirling look of a rose, but is achieved in one continuous rotation, rather than with wrapped layers of petals. Single rosettes are also used as candleholders on top of a cupcake.

What the Heart Wants Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely loved making this cake it was beautiful, delicious and perfect for Valentines day. The only bad thing that happened was when I covered and refrigerated my cake the fondant hearts melted into the cake. Other than that I was very pleased and my daughter thought they were rose petals so it turned out fine after all :)
