Made by adding a simple twist motion, swirl drop flowers have petals with a bit more flair and dimension, leading to open-looking Blossoms.

The bead shape makes impressive borders outlines and accents on letters and designs; also a cute trim on clothing and gingerbread houses. The basis for making piped hearts and figure piping.

The random lacy design of this free-form technique depends on the continuous curving lines that do not overlap or touch. Can be used in a small design area or on an entire cake surface. Good for wedding, anniversary and other formal event cakes, but lends itself to more casual themes, as well.

Ruffles add a decorative top border to your cakes or cupcakes. Pipe ruffles around plaques or to trim doll dresses or bonnets.
