A piping bag is incomplete without Nozzle
The top of the Nozzle gives the design on the cake. Nozzles can have U shaped cut, crosscut, straight-line cut, circle cut. Multiple things need to keep in mind while purchasing. There is a special technique to fill the bag. The bag needs to be adjusted on the long tumbler, and then the mixture has to be filled. The bag should always be half-filled so that it can be easily pressed and topped can be done easily. In this way, the mixture will not come out of the bag. The outer layer should be of cotton; however, there should be a thin layer of plastic or any slippery material from inside. Accumulation of air has to be avoided.
