Not being the d.i.y. type of person I was replacing the cement in the patio paving with a trowel and thought what if I used a piping bag to put the cement into the gaps instead.well it works a treat with no overlap .I just wish I was as good working on my wing .;-)

The funny part of that (for me who has done his fair share of grout work AND cake decorating... yes, cake decorating) is that this is actually commonplace in the industry. Any hardware store that sells trowels and tools for concrete and brick sells piping bags made out of canvas for "tuckpointing" which is grout replacement on vertical brick. Works slick and good on ya for coming up with it in the first place. So much cleaner than smearing it in and trying to clean the rest up with a sponge. Now... as long as you used grout instead of butter cream frosting.

The frosting they put on commercially made cakes these days is way stronger than grout. But grout actually tastes better.
