I have visions of becoming a top notch cupcake restauranteur… I seriously have no cupcake decorating skills but I always envision being able to do so. How hard can it be right? Now I have taken cake decorating classes and I can actually do some decorating – yes I can make a rose. But it takes practice and I don’t get much of it anymore so I have lost many of those skills. Plus who has the time? It would take me HOURS to decorate a cake and with special needs kids, a busy job, 4 horses, a blog and more – definitely time is very short lately.
This set of Russian Piping Tips is awesome. It is a 23 Piece Set with 7 Russian Tips, 2 Sphere Ball Tips, 1 Leaf Tip, 10 Disposable Bags, 1 Reusable Silicone Pastry Bag and 2 Couplers.
Now I will say I had grand visions of creating masterpieces like I see on TV. Maybe someday but today was definitely a blooper practice session. But either way, my daughter and I had fun and she thoroughly enjoyed eating all my bloopers.
First – make your cupcakes. I made the cupcakes the day before because I would not have had time to wait for them to cool. Making them the day before was very helpful for sure. Normally I make my own frosting but – yup who has time for that… So I bought piping frosting and yes there is such a thing. Easy as can be.
This is how we fill the decorator bags – put the piping tip in the bag, secure it and then open the bag inside a cup and secure it. I don’t know about you but I never have enough hands to hold the bag open. This eliminates that struggle entirely. Of course then my kids just want to eat frosting straight out of the cup…
I worked with two separate tips for today and just kind of had fun with them. My kids were always there to pick up the pieces anyway so there was no loss no matter what. Next time – I will check out some Youtube videos for some tips.
Okay so definitely not gorgeous – we will try again another day. I do love the large size and how many design options there are. Check out the next set…
