After baking a cake, we had some leftover frosting (or icing) and decided to make some symmetrical designs with it. Fortunately, we had some plastic bags that were specifically designed for "piping" or decorating a cake, however, a plastic baggie with a small corner cut out can work as well. Reminder: a symmetrical design is a composition with an imaginary center line that has design elements that are similar on both sides of the center line. We simply piped symmetrical designs onto clean dinner plates. If you have multiple colors, give that a try too. This was a fun activity. We practiced our design skills. And the art tasted good too!
