Cake Icing Tips

Icing cakes is an art which can be very satisfying and not hard to learn. Whether you want elaborate icing or simply want to write happy birthday there is a great selection of icing equipment available to help you. Writing in icing makes a cake even more fun and attractive. You can add joy to any occasion with the personal touch of a greeting written in icing.

Cakes must be completely cool before icing begins and you need to decide beforehand what the overall look is intended to be. It is important to select the correct tips and cake icing tubes. Metal is the best choice and it is not vital to purchase a large number initially. It is better to have a few and learn how to be competent using them. For a beginner, six tubes is probably ideal. These are: two star tubes, a fine writing tube, a petal tube, a leaf tube and a basket weave tube. You will also need two waterproof bags and two screws.

Cake icing tips help you produce your own designs such as intricate lacework, floral arrangements, basket weave designs or shell borders. The tips are small cones which have been preformed to produce different shapes when icing is squeezed through them. There is no end to the techniques than can be employed. Drapes, swags, flower petals or bows can all be created. Tips are made from durable brass plated in nickel which enables them to create precise decorating techniques as well as keep their shape after being put in a dishwasher.
