Russian Piping Tips For Cake Icing, Modelling And Decorating - 15 Piece Stainless-steel Nozzle Set

Even though it is a great deal of work, I love decorating cakes. It's my type of artwork. If you read cake decorating blogs or social media, you've probably read about the new Russian piping nozzles. They let you make different kinds of flowers - roses, tulips, carnations, etc - with one piping nozzle.

I chose to give them a shot, so I purchased a 15 nozzle set from Culinary Genius. These are made from food-grade 304 stainless steel and are really strong. They fit perfectly with a large coupler, and are simple to clean and store. These nozzles are huge - a lot bigger than usual piping nozzles. They don't make full-sized flowers though. They're generally about a half inch in size.

As far as making the flowers, there is a method to do it, which means a little bit of a learning curve. But with a little practice and patience, I was making bouquets on my cakes in no time!

While there is a method to get the flowers to look right, there is also a strategy to get the frosting to work. You need a stiff frosting to hold the shape of the flower designs, however not so stiff that it doesn't stream from the nozzle. A little searching and I found some terrific suggestions to make a good tasting frosting, and it kept the use of shortening and sugar to a minimum.
I've been so pleased with these Russian piping nozzles, they are an excellent addition to my cake decorating toolkit!
