pastry bags and decorating tools............

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

hi from the cold midwest!

 

i would consider myself somewhat of a novice when it comes to decorating cakes, cupcakes, etc. i just completed my first gingerbread house for our neighbor children. i was actually pretty impressed! biggrin.gif

 

to get to the point, i kinda have to "wing things" when it comes to the actual tools. now, i am interested in purchasing pastry bags and decorating tools. i have checked out a number of sites and, before i choose, wonder if anyone could pass along their favorite brands. i noticed there are a few to choose from. searching for work well, ease of use, durability---you know, along those lines.

 

thanks and Merry Christmas!

Pastry bags are common and found everywhere. As for decorating tools, that is a very wide variety depending what sort of decorations u want to do. I have lace molds anything and evrything not found in the stores. Elegantlacemolds.com and many other websites that carry very specialized decorating tools like fondant impressions.

Purchase the disposable plastic pastry bags. They are more sanitary. No cleaning required just take out tube and throw away..They come on a roll and you simply tear one off.

As far as tips, I've always like Ateco. Those things are solid and functional. Some might disagree, but I really hate Wilton. I got a single tip from them a bent it before I got to use it. Wilton is commonly found basically in every store that would sell tips, but if you ordering online, stick with Ateco

I know this is on a totally new subject but hoping you might be able to help. I live in the UK and have been trying to get hold of some elegant lace molds, it would seem the website does't work here...or maybe doesn't work at all (who knows) do you have any ideas of any other stockists for elegant lace molds, been trying to track down #207 (which is apparently discontinued) for my wedding cake! Apologies again for interfering in your post!

 

Thanks

Sorry you are having a hard time.  Try this :  http://www.cakecraftshoppe.com/products.asp   these people carry lace molds.  Looks like the original company is discontinued.
