You will learn a number of different ways to create your own piping bags and how to use them for different applications.

While this tutorial only deals with chocolate, in the coming volumes of this series, Serdar will work with other materials as well. Serdar will show you how to modify the consistency of chocolate through various different methods to suit the type of piping you are doing.
