Don't bother!by Gemma

1 stars out of 5

Decorating Set

I bought this to pipe icing onto my cupcakes and was so disappointed! It's far too fiddly. Couldn't get it to come out even and my hands were aching after icing 24 cupcakes. I've tried to use it several times and never had a successful cupcake. It's laying dormant in my cupboard now.

Perfect for amateur bakersby Janet

4 stars out of 5

Decorating Set

I'm surprised at the relatively poor reviews, as I've found this set really easy to use and gives good results. No problems cleaning it out either, the fiddlier bits take a few moments to rinse out under the tap. I do see why professionals wouldn't like it, as you can only use a small amount of icing at a time and if you need to do large batches it would get annoying. However as an enthusiastic amateur it's perfect for me!

I bought this a while back as it was on sale. I tried using it to decorate some cupcakes with a mascarpone and lemon & lime marmalade icing I have used successfully on big cakes in the past. Unfortunately the icing was coming out of the back of the seringe and not the nozzle. I had to resort to hand decorating. This is the first product from Lakeland I am really disappointed with.

Wouldn't recommendby Debbie

Decorating Set

Tired to use and doesn't make a good finish. It doesn't come out very consistent and the ends aren't great for making good designs. It is not very good quality I have used once and won't be using it again. Would be ok for children but not adults who want a good finish to their baking.

I bought this intending as I thought it may be less fussy than the piping bags but I was so wrong. The whole process is just tricky and awkward. The equipment is a nightmare to clean. To anyone thinking this may be an easier option it definitely is not.

Easy to useby Victoria

Decorating Set

I chose this set as I have RSI in my wrist and hoped it would not aggravate the condition. The set is very easy to use (the little I got to use it) and my 8 year old daughter enjoyed herself using it and iced anything and everything she had helped bake. But we did find that it wasted a lot of icing as the plunger stops where it narrows down, and you cannot get the icing out of the narrower section.

Published 08 03 2012

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. The plunger does not go all the way down the nozzle. A small bottle brush is ideal for cleaning out this narrower part. We'll be in touch shortly to help.

I had a metal version of this which loyally saw me through my amateurist attempts at birthday cakes, desserts etc. while my children were young and into the start of grandchildren era. After 30 years, sadly, it finally expired and I needed a replacement. Despite the mixed reviews, I decided to go for this design again as I am hopless with a piping bag. Yes, it's a little on the small size but, for me (a very non professional) it's perfectly adequate and very controllable, even my 4 year old grandson can use it. Good selection of nozzles and useful storage box. It works brilliantly for me.

Great Productby Miss Campbell

4 stars out of 5

Decorating Set

I find piping bag a bit fiddly and time consuming to use so I bought this item to make icing easier and it definitely did that! I've experimented with all of the different nozzles and love all of the different effects. The only downside is that I find the nozzle hard to clean. I also think it is good value in the long run as you can reuse it as many times as you want compared to continually having to buy piping bags. Great product.

Good for small batches before it cracks!by Heidi

1 stars out of 5

Decorating Set

I once used icing bags but couldn't quite get along with them so I liked the look of this as my first decorating set - good choice of nozzles and a handy box. I found it gave more control over icing than a bag, however, I too found I could only decorate 3 or so cupcakes before I needed to refill it, which proved quite messy, and it's a struggle to get the air bubbles out until you've pushed a lot of icing down the barrel. After just two uses, the plastic barrel of the "syringe" cracked and will have to be thrown away. Disappointing.

Last used icing set a couple of weeks ago everything fine -plastic tube has suddenly broken around the top so plunger is useless and it has also split. I have only used this for piping cream or soft butter icing - very dissapointed.

Love it, but disappointed with qualityby Jayne

2 stars out of 5

Decorating Set

I bought this to do some extra effects on cupcakes and was recommended by a member of staff in the new and improved Norwich store (love it!). It was good for different effects and nozzles easy to change, but a bit tricky to get icing into repeatedly if you are doing a lot of cakes. I agree with others that traditional icing bags are better for this, but brill for kids to have a go with and more fiddly decorations. However I was really disappointed with the icing barrel quality. It has cracked on the join after a handful of uses and now icing creeps out.

A good product while it lasted !by Christine

3 stars out of 5

Decorating Set

Having purchased this decorating set a couple of months ago, I have really enjoyed using it and decorating the family birthday cakes. Unfortunately the clear plastic now seems to have become very brittle and a piece has now snapped off of the top of the syringe which means I cannot use it anymore. I have taken great care to always hand wash it after use, never in the dishwasher so I am disappointed it didnt last very long.

I bought 2 of these at Christmas for my 5 year olds. We have used one of them several times and today it has cracked and therefore we can not use it anymore. Luckily we had the other one but I feel that it should jot have cracked - 5 year olds aren't that strong!

Good results but not so easy to clean...by Mrs Watson

3 stars out of 5

Decorating Set

I've only used the set for butter icing so far and am very happy with the results, but had trouble cleaning the nozzle. I had to use a narrow bottle brush as it was the only thing small enough to clean the nozzle with - a cloth is far too bulky. Perhaps a suitable cleaning tool should be included with the set? Rated at 3 only because of this problem.

Thought this was great the first time I used it, but when I used it the second time to ice my daughter's birthday cake the plunger broke! Not very robust!

Not really good for keen bakersby Linh

1 stars out of 5

Decorating Set

This is the first piping set I bought as I wanted to move onto the decorating part of bakery. The actual syringe is quite small thus unable to hold a lot of icing and I kept on having to refill it. A lot of effort goes into trying to get all the air out so during piping, the swirls are not stopped. This may be better for children but for professional work I would stick to the classic piping bags.

I used this and the 3rd cake I iced, the plunger broke. Every time I pressed it it turned sideways and the icing came up the main container rather than out through the nozzle. Not impressed.
