Method

  1. Take a rectangular piece of silicon or waxed greaseproof paper – approximately 30cm x 45cm – and cut it in half diagonally from one corner to the opposite corner. Rather than making a series of snips, slide the blades of the scissors through the paper to make a cleaner cut.
  2. Hold one of the resulting paper triangles with your hand at the middle of the longest side and with your hand on the point on the opposite side. The longer side of the triangle should be on your left.
  3. Curl the shorter corner on your right over to the corner that is pointing towards you, so that it forms a cone.
  4. With your left hand, wrap the longer corner on the left around the tip of the cone twice.
  5. Join the corner together with the other two corners at the back of the cone.
  6. If the bag has an open tip at the point of the cone, close it by adjusting and tightening the inner and outer layers. Wiggle the layers back and forth until the cone forms a sharp point.
  7. Fold the corners at the open end into the inside of the bag twice to prevent it unravelling.

Tip

  • When filling, only ever half-fill the piping bag otherwise the contents will ooze out when you squeeze. Once half-full, close the bag by folding the side with the seam over to the plain side twice.
