HOW TO FILL A PIPING BAG
Start by folding over the top of the bag, creating a cuff to fold over the top of a cup or your hand. Use a spatula to push icing into the bottom of the bag, scraping the spatula against the edge of your cup of thumb, to make sure all the icing gets in the bag.
Twist the top of the bag shut, just above the icing and hold it in the nook between the thumb and first finger of your dominant hand.
