I am in the process of decorating 3 cakes that have been iced with Sugarshack's buttercream. I want to pipe dots around the sides of all the cakes with tip 3. Just wondering what if anything I should do to the standard recipe to make piping sucessful. I have also read that lots of people use royal icing for this.....but I would rather avoid that if possible. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated.

i have not used her particular icing--
i think it's a crusting bc yes?--
but in general i like a bit looser icing for dots--
for example similar to icing hat you would pipe leaves or grass with--
then i'm sure you know to pop each dot down (they leave a pointy tip) with the uber clean tip of your finger after it sits for a minute to get it nice & smoothy smooth
or dip fingertip in cornstarch and shake off excess for best results
you'll do great
practice first for best results
