Use a very small parchment cone, so you can hold it in one hand like a pen! You can see the girls on Ace Of Cakes do this quite often. It's what works for me.

PME tips work best for tiny tip piping.

Bekenal tips also work great for this. Bekenal and PME are just brand names.

oh i love Duff.........i have seen the girls piping with the parchment cones, but i haven't tried that yet. i pipe at night while im watching tv. i just really want to master those tiny details, so i just practice, practice, practice.........im doing a western cake this weekend, and an over the hill.........both of them require quite a bit of piping so look for the pics in my photos next week and look for me to be crippled cuz my hands can't take it!
