Pressure Control

In addition to having the proper icing consistency and the correct bag position, you'll need to master three types of pressure control: heavy, medium and light.

Options:

The size and uniformity of your icing designs are affected by the amount of pressure you apply to the bag and the steadiness of the pressure--how you squeeze and relax your grip on the decorating bag. Your goal is to learn to apply pressure so consistently that you can move the bag in a free and easy glide while just the right amount of icing flows through the tip. Practice will help you achieve this control.

Option 1: Light Pressure

Option 2: Medium Pressure

Option 3: Heavy Pressure
