Calling all bakers who are intimidated by cake decorating: this ones for you!
I only recently heard about Russian decorating tips and I have to say I'm a complete convert. You can easily get professional looking results with very little effort. Sign me up! Many, many years ago I took a cake decorating class at my local baking supply store. While the class was great and I learned a lot about making buttercream flowers, I have to say these Russian decorating tips are a total game changer.
Instead of making individual petals to form the flowers, these decorating tips make the entire flower in one go. Genius! Based on a recommendation, I bought this set from Amazon and they are fantastic. Admittedly I had to practice quite a bit to get satisfactory results (granted I am a perfectionist), but they really are easy to use.
Take your cakes to the next level and invest in these Russian decorating tips. For a nominal price the ROI is phenomenal (that's my Finance background talking!).
