Want professional looking cakes?!
Ever struggled getting your icing to look as good as the fancy cupcakes you see in cafes? Ever had your icing dribble down the side of your cake and ruin it?! The big question is, have you ever used an icing tube? If your answer is no, I think you should give yourself a slap on the wrist and buy one asap!
They really don’t cost much at all! You can get throw away ones, or plastic ones. In our house we have a plastic one, however I’m thinking of buying some throw away tubes to see if they’re any good.
These tubes allow you to top your cakes with your own icing nicely. Ready made icing usually comes in a tube anyway so it’s not that much of a problem. But if you make buttercream icing, or egg whites icing then it’s a bit of a struggle to make it look nice on your caked without one of these.
Mine was from Wilkinson but you can get them from a lot of other places, especially cooking and craft shops. You can also buy different nozzles so the icing comes out in different patterns. They improve the presentation of your cakes significantly, so go give it a try!
