Does anyone have a good suggestion for making a dot without getting that peak? I can never seem to make a dot without the peak. icon_mad.gif

for me it is usually luck, but when I get a peak I just dab it with a damp finger.

it takes practice, but you can do it with a little twist of the wrist as you're releasing pressure and pulling up.

But for the most part, waiting for the buttercream to crust and then dabbing my finger on it to flatten it is the easiest.

I tap my peaks down with a damp food safe brush (paintbrush). That way I don't leave my fingerprints icon_smile.gif
