I'm new to decorating. I made a cake for a friend's daughter this weekend and she wanted swirls on the top tier (see pink and green cake in pics). As I was putting them on the cake, it became evident to me that I am not very good at varying the swirls enough to make it look random. I had to think very hard about what I was doing. Can anyone offer a trick or tip to make it simpler. Hope this makes sense, I feel a little silly even asking. Thanks in advance!

Thank you! I have those and have used them for scrolls, but my set doesn't have the one that is circular- more of a swirl than a scroll. Is there one for that? That would be great!

Yes, there is a trick to it...

You're just not comfortable yet. Once you find your rhythm, you won't have to think so hard about it.

Well, that's good news because I got a real brain cramp and they still looked like they were pretty much all going in the same direction. sigh. Thanks.
