Sorry to have to say, I too have problems with the set. Both bags are out of action, after just one use, had to resort to using a plastic bag to finish cake..

I was very excited to purchase these nozzle tips based on the reviews. Being a newbie at cupcake decorating, I didn't realise that these nozzle tips were smaller than what I was used to when attending cupcake decorating classes. I wish there was some indication in the description. I now need to spend more money than I can afford to actually get the nozzles that I need. In the description it says, "When it comes to detailed decorating, you’ll never need another nozzle!" Honestly, that's not true. Wish I could return these. After all, I only used 2 of the tips. Really unhappy.

Great nozzles not so good piping bags”
by David Mason
I brought this decorating set after reading the reviews about it on this site, lucky I did because as earlier reviews advised buying the single use piping bags with this product due to a tendency of the bags included in this set splitting. So when bags split the first time I used them at least I could finish what I was doing.

Ideal for advancing your baking decoration”
My mum bought me this as a present, as the kit contained the various nossles as well as the added extras. I love the case, as it keeps everything together neatly. I've used a starter piping kit before, so I know how to put it together, but if you've not done so before, you may get a bit stuck to start with. I've given this 4/5, mainly as the piping bag holes were a fraction too big, which deemed them useless as I couldn't get anything screwed on. Lakeland kindly sent me some get a grip bags, which I think may be slightly better than the ones in the kit! Overall a good buy for keen bakers!

Great so far but no instructions”
by Josie Wilders
Just bought the decoration set and it looks great! The cleaning tool looks great and there are so many icing nozzles and it looks great. The only thing is that there are no instructions or anything to tell me about the icing nozzles and what they all are and what they create! Other than that I look forward to using it! :)

Great Nozzles, Pity about the bags”
I bought this when i was in the shop recently and couldnt believe the great selection of nozzles available, complete with icing bags. Unfortunately when making 2cakes, the bags both split on cake #2. Having no other bags I had to go out and get some disposable ones. This seems to be a reoccuring problem amongst everyone thats buying this item so hopefully its being looked into? Also, an instructions booklet would be very helpful, with pictures detailing which nozzle can make what patterns! Something to think about i hope. Overall,great nozzles but the bags make it a letdown how easy they broke

Excellent set for use with my own piping set”
by Mrs Stevens
I bought this set so that I had a large variety of nozzles to use with the syringe icing set that I already own. It is excellent and the cleaning brush is very handy. I can't comment on the icing bags as I have not used them, but for me this set has been perfect. My only problem is I do find it tricky to close so that all the nozzles sit in the right area, so I am removing a star for this fact. Btw Lakeland, I love my syringe set but it is getting extremely old now and the plastic elements are going. I want a replacement but you seem to have stopped selling a metal syringe??

Just what I was looking for and at a good price too. A nice broad selection of nozzles for every occasion. Good quality and no sharp edges. Didn't realise they also came with 2 reusable bags, cleaning brush and a flower rose. What a bonus. All in a handy box.

I've used this for wedding cakes, birthday cakes and 'just for fun' cakes! Works brilliantly for all!

This is a good value for money icing set. The range of nozzles are varied and the storage box is handy. The only downside is the lack of instructions and a guide to the effects each nozzle gives would have made me give this product 5 stars. Even a video on Lakelands website with instruction would have been useful.

Nice little set”
I was bought this for Christmas as a gift. It's a very nice set but as I am a bit of a novice I do like to have some instructions to let me know which nozzle does what. Although I have managed to find out on the internet most things, it would have been easier if it just had a leaflet with a few pictures. Also one of my bags split too. So I am using disposable ones which work quite well.

Great for beginners”
I've been looking to buy this set for ages but was reluctant because of the mixed reviews. I'm glad I did because it's exactly what I needed and it did the job perfectly. The piping bag however could be designed a little better. I snipped a tiny bit off the end of the piping bag for the coupler to fit better. I would suggest getting thick plastic disposable bags. They work very well with this set. I watched a few YouTube videos to set up a piping bag and to enhance my knowledge. But after understanding a lot more through watching the tutorials I have to say these nozzles great!

A lot for nothing”
Bought this set as wanted a wider range of tips compared to my starter kit. It was initially difficult to slip the coupler in but once icing in and started it stretched too much and allows icing to ooze through. Need quite a bit of pressure to get icing through the tip and in the end resorted to my starter kit which did the job better albeit simpler designs.

Good nozzles, rubbish bags.”
I bought this product a couple of weeks ago. I was very pleased with the nozzles, although as I was using two different coloured icings another nozzle attachment piece would of been useful. However, the bags I found to be very stiff and the inside of them has bubbled in the wash. I will now have to buy new bags to use with the set.

Icing bag problems”
by Zillah Ingledew
I was bought the piping set for a christmas present and it seemed great at the time.I've been using both the large and small piping bags as have been making and icing birthday cakes,buns and cookies. I have now found that the nozzles are becoming difficult to fit and the large bag has lost the cotton lining near to the opening.The smaller bag cannot always hold the nozzles properly as it is starting to split open ! I guess my next step is to buy extra piping bags,such a shame as these were great for not oozing the icing through a seem or letting out any greasiness.

What would be very useful with this set, is that instead of the icing bags - I think everyone prefers to use disposables these days - is a sheet with a quick diagram or explanation of which each nozzle is for. I'm trying to teach myself and can't find a reference anywhere on the internet. Plus the case IS a total nightmare.

Nice set shame about the bags”
by Mrs MacLean
Bought this set around a year ago and have only used it three times. Similarly to the other users experience, the seam on the large bag gave way. Have bought other bags to use the nozzles in and use them in home-made greaseproof paper bags. Even with the bag issues I still think this is a worthwhile buy. Addendum 11/1/12 Lakeland were kind enough to send me some of the new bag design to test. So far so good. No splits. Due to the waxed inner it is easy to change icings. Bag is quite stiff to use, thought that may ease off with use, but may be difficult to use for fine work.

Great nozzles, difficult storage case”
I got this set as a step up to more professional piping. I returned it before using it as the case was a nightmare. As soon as you remove a nozzle or take a piece out, it's like a puzzle trying to get everything back in place and shut the case again! I decided much as I liked the contents, I couldn't cope with the exasperation of trying to get everything back into the case after every use! Please try a better storage option for this item Lakeland.

Fab nozzles - rubbish case.”
These are such lovely strong nozzles but the case broke very quickly and I can now only use the lid with a rubber band round the whole lot to keep it on and the contents from spilling. If you have alternative storage then nozzles are good and varied.

Brought this for decorating my nan's two tier 70th birthday cake. Half way though decoration the bag split over the cake. I then had to clean the cake up, make a new batch of icing. Luckly I had some disposable piping bags in the drawer, but not happy as this was first time using the set!
