Piping On The Seam 

Squeeze, while outlining the edge of the cookie. After outlining the entire edge, stop at the edge of the beginning line, touch and lift 

(This is called the dam or seam.) 

Sealing The Dam / Seam 

To seal the seam, dip a paintbrush in some water. 
Dab the paintbrush on a paper towel. Gently touch the seam. This will cause it to disappear. 

Allow the outline to dry.
