Basic Decorating Techniques - Zigzag Puff

This is the fluffy look you want for making clouds or smoke and to add dimension as a side border.
Getting Ready

Set up your practice board.

Insert a coupler base in your Featherweight bag and lock open star tip 17 onto it with your coupler ring.

Fill bag half full with medium consistency Buttercream Icing.

Practice with: Tip 17
Icing: medium consistency
Bag: 45° at 3:00 (9:00 for left handed decorating)
Tip: lightly above the surface

1. 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.
2. To end each puff, stop pressure and pull tip away.
3. Repeat as you move in a straight line to form a row of puffs.
