This is probablly obvious to those with even a rudimentary grasp of cake decorating, but....when I pipe large or small dots, I almost always have a little spike or tail coming off the top of the dot where the buttercream leaves the tip...they often look like a little hershey kiss. sometimes I go back and pat them down but that gets time consuming and I suspect that I am doing something wrong to get them inthe first place. How do I get rid of the little tail? Is it...
So I stopped by my handy dandy hardware store last night and picked up three different diameters...cut them in half because my pieces were 48 inches in length. WORKED LIKE A CHARM!!!! Thank you so much..I've struggled with this issue for so long and so appreciate the advice and simple solution!!

Gotcha...I agree that our time is precious and we never get paid accordingly. Thanks for the clarification about the height...that makes a huge difference for me.
Thank you for the advice...and so quickly too! ( I noticed that I mis-spelled the word "price" in my title..awesome.) Anyway, yes, I need to calculate my ingredients and time..not sure what you charge for time though...minimum wage? Anyway, I will do some calculating and try to figure something out that is reasonable for the gal. Here's another question: 9x13 by 2" tall or 4"tall? Just wondering.Thanks again!
