Fit the decorating bag with tip 3 and fill 1/2 full with medium consistency icing. Hold the decorating bag 90° straight up; the tip should be slightly above surface.
Squeeze bag and keep point of tip buried in icing until the dot is the size you want.
Stop pressure, pull tip up and to the side, to help prevent points in dots.
Clean point away by circling tip across the top of dot. Release pressure, slide away.
