    Fill pastry bag half way 3/4 full. Never over fill the bag, it will just fall out the back end and make a mess.

    Hold you're bag at a 45 degree angle and rotate the cupcake, holding the bag in the same place. The requires both hands which is why there are no photos of it being done the whole time. Twist and bring it in slowly until you reach the middle.

you can use large ziploc bags to, just clip at one corner, and close it. Ziplocs work get when your working with kids,so the icing doesnt get all over them.
