Recently, I was given the chance to review Russian Piping Tips by Baker Bliss. Let’s start by saying I am not even close to having any kind of cake decorating talent. I see all of the pretty cakes and cupcakes on Pinterest that look PERFECT but for some reason, my replications can’t even compete. Heck, they aren’t even in the race. They just look squished and sad. I might as well have my 1st grader do it. He likes art so I’m sure he would have a ball.

To test out these Russian Piping Tips, I had to come up with a frosting that could withstand being piped. There are 12 different tips in this set that make intricate and detailed flowers. I mean everything from the delicate petals to the flowers center. If your frosting is too soft you’ll just be piping out mush, but it can’t be too firm either.

Been there, done that. If it’s too firm, you might as well consider it edible play-doh. It’s way too hard to squeeze through the tips but is great to play with. I learned that if you don’t sift the powdered sugar edible play-doh is what you will get. Didn’t bother me a bit. The kiddos loved it!

The great thing about this icing set besides having large, heavy duty piping tips is that it also comes with a pastry bag. A reusable one at that. With this pastry bag you can use up to three different icing colors at once and the included coupler makes changing out tips a breeze. Being a novice icing piper, having the ability to wash and reuse the pastry bag was invaluable.

Unfortunately, piping flowers is hard and takes quite a bit of a learning curve. I’m going to keep on practicing now that I have these amazing tips! As you can see I need it.

Can you pipe flowers?

    Oooh this is so fun!! I love the idea of using it for icing practice!! Seriously genius!

    • Krystle says:

      Thank you! I definitely needed the practice and figure it’s a lot cheaper to use than actual icing. 😛

  4. Cute idea! I like the idea of edible play doh. It reminds a little of one time – only once – I made cookie dough (without eggs or raw flour) to intentionally eat raw! I love decorating cookies, but found out the hard way it isn’t that easy.

    • Krystle says:

      Oh yes, it’s not as easy as some people make it look. I don’t blame you on that cookie dough 😉
