Fit decorating bag with decorating tip. Fill decorating bag 1/2 full or less with icing.
Hold the decorating bag at a 45° angle at 6:00, with wide end of tip touching surface
and narrow end straight up. Starting at the center point of the bow, squeeze, moving
the tip up and around to the left and back to the starting point.
Continue around, making a second loop on the right. The two loops will form a figure 8
To add a bow knot, after piping the bow loops hold the decorating bag so the tip
opening is horizontal at the center of the bow. Squeeze, moving the tip from the top,
over the bow loops, to the bottom. Stop squeezing; touch tip to surface. Complete the
bow with streamers
While holding the decorating bag in the same position, return to the center and squeeze
out two streamers, moving away from the bow. For wavy streamers, move the
decorating bag in a back and forth motion while piping the streamer.
To change the look of a piped bow use a Round or Star Decorating Tip [use tip 5
(round) or tip 18 (star) for practice].
