Zigzag puff

Zigzag puffs are perfect for borders or for filling in large areas. You can also use this technique to achieve clouds or smoke.

Steps:

Step 1: Prepare Icing and Fill Bag

Fit the decorating bag with round tip 16 and fill 1/2 full with medium consistency icing. Hold the bag at a 45° angle at 3:00. Hold the tip lightly touching the surface.

Step 2: Light, Heavy, Light Pressure

Begin to pipe with a light pressure, then use heavier pressure toward the center of the puff, then return gradually to a light pressure to form the tapered end.

Step 3: Stop Pressure

To end each puff, stop pressure and pull away.

Step 4: Repeat

Repeat as you move in a straight line to form a row of puffs.
