"I always love how you teach. Your advice on the microwave being your friend has been a major "a-ha" for me!! Little things like positioning your body in reference to the cake you're working on!!

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.
