How to make a mini piping bag

A nifty trick that you’ll be nimble at in no time, with a little practice.

How to make a mini piping bag
  1. Cut a square piece of baking paper in half diagonally to give two equal triangles.


  2. Taking one of the pieces of paper, fold one of the more acute (pointed) corners up to meet the ‘middle’ corner, to start making a cone.


  3. Take the corner on the other side and instead of folding it up, wrap it around to complete a cone.


  4. Shape the cone so the corners align, then fold them inside so it holds its shape.


  5. Fill the piping bag with icing, then roll the top down to seal and snip the point off the bag.


  6. Squeeze from the top to start piping – be gentle as too much pressure will split the bag.
