I appreciate your cake decorating videos and tutorials. I take some
classes here at home, but what you are offering is so convenient and
CLEAR in your instructions. I especially like when things aren't perfect, since in my world, they usually aren't...lol." ~Lynn~

problems!!! I'm looking forward to watching the rest of the content

How To Make A Parchment Cone For Piping
Subscribe to Lorelie's Free Videos on Wedding Cakes For You-YouTube.
Decorating cones are great to have around. They are good for quick or small jobs, like writing on cakes, making stems and leaves, piping chocolate and more. You can use waxed paper too, as I do in the video.
