    In the piping bag do you draw coloured lines horizontally or vertically?

  4. Mareena Jerrish says:

    If you are holding the piping bag with the tip pointing to the ground, draw vertical lines starting from the tip towards you. Hope you understood. Please feel free if you need more clarifications..
