KITCHEN SELECT Russian Icing Piping Tips Reivew

I love to decorate sweet treats. I have to say that I need a ton of practice when it comes to piping. I have just always tried to stay away from the piping part by decorating with candy, or sprinkles. When it comes to things like Cake Walks at school I always wished I was better with piping. I now have the tools to get better. Kitchen Select gave me a Russian Icing Piping Tips to review.

The set comes with 25 pieces. The cost is $25.99. It comes with 23 tips, 1 silicone bag, and a coupler. I didn't know what a coupler is. It fits on the tip with 3 sections. You can put in 3 different colors in 3 different bags. I'm not that fancy, yet.

Everything fit in one small box:

Here's some close ups of the tips:

I had some pink frosting I needed to use up, so that's what we used. It's important to keep your icing cold before making the flowers! If it's room temperature forget pumping out anything that will stay.

Put the cold icing on clear plastic wrap, and have a scissors and twisty tie handy. 

First we put a tip in the reusable silicone bag. We had to cut a bit of the bag, which is normal. It stretches a bit, so we made it smaller than needed. 

The next step is to roll the icing into a sausage type roll, cut the tip off and twisty tie the back. That went in to the silicone bag.

Then we were ready to pipe. I used one of the star tips because it's 4th of July time, but it didn't look like a star at all. It ended up looking more like a jelly fish.

I ended up doing most of them like this:

It was simple, but I didn't have a lot of frosting. I certainly didn't want to make more. The cupcakes are lemon.

The boys helped me. It was a fun family decorating event. I'm having company over tomorrow, so this will be a nice treat. 

I can't wait to dive into using other colors.

Do you like to decorate treats?

When my kids were younger, they would pick a design and I would mix up a batch of frosting, separate it into different bowls for different colors and then use plastic bags with the corner cut to squeeze it out. I remember doing a jungle scene, a beach scene, Draculaura, and Barbie from The Island Princess with a huge peacock dress. It was kind of fun and kind of stressful.

Wow, Alissa. I'm impressed. Those look really good.

We don't have treats often. My wife made some cookies this past week, and I went into the kitchen and ate some of the dough out of the mixing bowl. The next night there wa a news story on CBS about a warning never to eat cookie dough raw.

I think every baker needs a good set of piping tips. I'd love to have a set of these in my kitchen too!
