This post is about some beginning piping techniques. You may have a few question before we start.
What kind of icing do I use? – Use what ever you have on hand. Whipped ganache, Swiss Meringue Buttercream, Italian Buttercream, Whipped cream, Wilton style Buttercream. Almost anything thing but a royal icing.
What do I pipe it on? A piece of wax paper, parchment paper or even a plastic wrapped cake board, You want a surface you can scrap the icing back off of so you can reuse it to practice.
Must I practice? Well no, but remember you will then be learning and making mistakes on the finished product,Sometimes it is not that easy to scrap off and cover up the mistake.
Can I reuse the icing? Sure, but I try and only reuse it for practice or something I am going to eat. I do not want to sell or serve an inferior product
