How to Pipe a Cactus
Star and round tips are not only used for details, they can also be used to pipe beautiful succulents and cacti.
Using a decorating bag fitted with Tip 199, hold the bag straight up, with the tip just slightly above the surface.
Using heavy pressure, pipe the base of the cactus. Keep pressure steady as you pull upward to build the body of the cactus.
Keep piping until you reach your desired height. Stop squeezing before pulling tip away.
Using Tip 2, add dots throughout the cactus for extra detail. Pipe a small star on top using Tip 18.
