Yesterday was a great day here at Rustik Cake Studio, we had an amazing teacher and lots of fun. Kathleen Lange taught us the Lange/Lambeth method and we use so many tips that I though it could be a good idea to talk about Icing tips. So here it is :)
One of the cake decorator's essential tools are cake decorating tips. They are also called icing tips, cake tips or pastry tips. These tips are mostly available in metal but there are some plastic ones available, too.
Decorating tips are the nozzles on the end of a pastry bag that the frosting or filling is forced through to apply it to cakes, cookies, or pastries. There are many different sizes and designs available, which will allow you to make most any type of design and allow you to do a lot of creative decorating.
Some of the common tips are the round tip for line work and writing, an open star tip for borders, a closed star for flower shapes, and the leaf tip for leaves and other border designs.With just a few these tips you can magically create different effects with your frosting. Just by varying the angle, the pressure and the way you move the tip and you change the look of your borders.
