Sotas Technique

Sotas Technique

This lacy and impressive decorating technique is great for covering cakes, filling in areas or serving as a background to an array of buttercream flowers. Made using a small round tip, the sotas technique is simply a long line of overlapping loops. It can be piped on top of your cake, or can be piped around the edges for fun and decorative border.
