Additional Information

Step 1

Fit decorating bag with round decorating tip 1 and fill no more than 1/4 full with thin consistency icing.

Step 2

Hold the bag at a 90° angle, with the tip 1/2 to 1 inch above the surface.

Step 3
Step 3

Squeeze the bag allowing the icing to drop randomly in a series of overlapping loops.

Step 4
Step 4

Cover area edge-to-edge. Stop pressure and pull tip away.

Step 5


Use only a small amount of thinned icing in the decorating bag; this puts less pressure on your hands.

The harder you squeeze the decorating bag, and the slower you move the bag, the curvier your piped lines will be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just have to keep focused on where you want it, they tend to go wherever if you aren't careful. Fun and so pretty when done.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I found this technique easy to do but not too effective. In fact, we made a cake where we put this on but then decided it looked too easy and not elegant enough so we took it off! It was a lot of work to do that. I think it would be great for other cakes such as birthdays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really loved that this was in the book. I had a wedding cake that I needed to make and this is what she wanted. It took sometime to get the technique down but once I did it turned out great.
