Piping a plain swirl with a plain piping tip

  • Twist the icing bag and grip between your thumb and index finger. Place the other hand at the bottom of the bag and use this to guide the tip.
  • Applying pressure with your hand at the top of the bag, start at the outside edge piping round the edge of the paper in a spiral towards the centre, pushing the tip into the icing as you pipe. When you reach the top, pull up quickly to finish the swirl.
  • Decorate with sprinkles or sugar flowers.
