Next, you need to completely remove the soft part of the tube, leaving only a tight plastic "nose" and a cover to it. Then you need to fix the package. To do this, a small hole is cut out in one corner of the bag, a plastic tube is threaded into it. It is important that the tube fits snugly against the bag.
At the end of the life hack, you only have to put the lid on the tube with the hole made in advance.This part of the craft will be fundamental in the entire design. The cream will pass through the lid and fold into beautiful patterns on a cake or pie.
