I love to bake, but I am struggling with using a pastry bag. I would love to master this skill - what advice do you have?

From Gene Longo - Annapolis, MD

The only way to learn to use a pastry bag is to practice. I would make a big bowl of whipped cream fill a pastry bag, and pipe the whipped cream onto a cutting board. When you're done, scoop it back into the bag, and try again until you have the hang of it!
