This tip is used very often in my kitchen. It is standard for writing on cakes or cookies. I just pop it in the dishwasher when I’m done.

Joli S. on 02/26/2018

A simple cake with a string design is made easy with this pastry tube. It's small so it can create very fine, detailed work. As long as your frosting is whipped smoothly, you will have an easy time with this.
