Click To Mark Complete
Before starting, use a FoodWriter or small dots of icing to mark even spacing between shingle sections.
Using a tip 3 (or any small round tip), hold the bag straight out and touch the tip to the surface.
Squeeze a dot to attach the starting point to the surface.
As you pipe a line, lift the tip slightly away from the surface.
Move the tip towards the next point, letting the line of icing drop naturally as it forms an arc.
Touch the tip back to the surface at the end point of the shingle, stop squeezing and pull away. Repeat to pipe a row of shingles.
Stagger the next row of shingles so that the start and end point of a new shingle connects with the midpoints of two arcs from the previous row.
