Drop the nozzle into your piping bag first and foremost, before filling with your icing. It is recommended that you fill the bag approximately two thirds full before you twist the bag and hold the end with your writing hand. Gently apply pressure to the top of the bag to eliminate any air bubbles. Move slowly when you are piping, take your time and remember that practice makes perfect!
What are your top cake decorating tips?
Decorating a cake can undoubtedly be a challenge, but there are a few things that you can do to make the job slightly easier. Whether you are a beginner baker or a seasoned pro, create a sketch of the finished design that you would like to achieve and think about how you are going to make each of the various elements.
Always make sure that your cake is fully cooled before you add any decorations. If you have time, we recommend leaving it overnight to ensure that it is the right temperature. To get the perfect finish on your fab frosting, use a turntable and a scraper. Just move the cake around slowly and work your scraper with a 45-degree angle to achieve that smooth, professional finish. Always work slowly, and remember that it takes time to create that professional finish.

How should I wash my cake decorating equipment?
We would first like to advise customers to always the manufacturers individual care instructions prior to cleaning. Always wash your cake decorating tools in warm soapy water immediately after each use. If you are using a smaller item such as a piping tip, and struggling to get it clean, leave it to soak in warm soapy water for a few minutes. Rinse properly and ensure that they are dried thoroughly before storage. Most of these items are not dishwasher safe, and you should always avoid the use of any harsh chemicals, including chlorine and bleach.
