You know how much flair curling ribbon adds to a package. Here's the easy way to make fondant curls. Curliques also are great used for hair, tails and confetti streamers.

The star tip creates the most celebrated, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated edges of the star tip make ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out. Because fill in requires so much piping from the same bag, keep replenishing icing in bag.
