I’m No Buddy Valastro!

I like to bake.  I find it enjoyable and relaxing and face it, who doesn’t like a good piece of cake!  One of the more challenging aspects of baking is decorating.  I’ve never been much of an artist, but the nice thing about cake decorating is the cake still taste good regardless of how it looks.

A couple of years ago, a friend introduced me to Russian Piping Tips.  These made decorating much easier.  With one tip, you could create flowers, leaves and many other designs.  Needless to say, I ordered some for myself.

I’ve used them many times and some of the results are in this post.  I mostly use an American buttercream for decorating, however I’m becoming a fan of Swiss meringue buttercream.  I do enjoy the process and I’m always pleased with the final results.

So, go to Amazon, Ali Express or your favorite baking supply store and buy some tips!  Then watch some videos on their usage and try it for yourself.
