Parchment cones are used for decorating with small amounts of frosting. They are used to apply lettering, small designs, and for touching up areas. The triangle shaped parchment cones can be cut from sheets of parchment paper or they are available in several pre-cut sizes from stores that sell cake decorating supplies. The cones are hand constructed to form a cone and then the edge is taped to secure it. The cone is then filled and the tip is clipped, similar to disposable pastry bags. The more the tip is clipped, the wider the stream of frosting will be when it is squeezed out. The cones are used in the same manner as the pastry bags except the couplings are not used so you are limited on the type of designs you can create.
