Not very impressed”
I wish I had taken notice of the negative reviews as I was hoping for something really impressive and find this quite disappointing. To my mind using this pen was no easier than just having a normal piping bag. Also both the nozzles mine came with are the same size and too big for writing with, I ended up using my writing tip from my set of nozzles, so quite a lot of money for basically just a piece of fiddly plastic.

wasted my money”
I visited my local store to purchase supplies for making a birthday cake. I thought this product looked good, however it was a waste of time and money, doesn't work and ending up resorting to using normal piping bag for details. Wouldn't recommend this, wish I hadn't wasted nearly £10 on it!! First Lakeland product which I feel so disappointed with.

waste of money”
This product really didn't live up to expectations. Its no different from using a piping bag with the same nosel - if anything that gives you more control. Its also fiddly to have to start cutting down the piping bags. Not sure why it doesn't just come with two that are the right size. Anyway it's now in the bin!

so easy to use”
bought one of these to write on my grandsons 21st birthday cake - I was amazed that it was so easy to use and you could even read the message on his cake.

I have always struggled to write messages legibly with an icing set so thought I would try this, it was well worth in the investement, it is much easier to control the flow of the icing with this device and I have manage to type Happy Mother's day on a cupcake on my first attempt so I am well pleased . Thankyou Lakeland

Much improved icing results!”
Great gadget and so easy to use and my results on my gingerbread house were excellent with it. I would thoroughly recommend it.

Don't hesitate - it's worth it!”
You never know when you buy a new product - but the Lakeland salesgirl said just to bring it back if I wasn't happy (superb guarantee). Wow! this is such a great item for decorating your cakes. For the first time ever I "wrote" an inscription on a birthday cake - and it was perfect. So easy to handle and control. And what is great is that you can have your icing colours in separate bags - all ready - and just change over quickly, popping each one into the Deco Pen as you need it. (you will need enough couplers). I am so pleased I have this now.

The best purchase I've ever made!!”
The deco pen is literally the best cake decorating gadget I have ever bought! It is the perfect size to fit plenty of icing in it but at the same time it is small enough even for my little hands to control with ease. The instructions for use are clear and I have also found that I can use my own nozzles in this too which is handy for other designs. I would absolutely recommend this product. Without a doubt it is amazing!!

I went on a cupcake course to learn decorating but due to problems with arthritis in my hands I kept shaking when trying to use the piping bag, however I have discovered the Deco Pen and my what a difference to my cake decorating, cannot praise it enough has made a real difference and so quick and easy to use. So if you have a problem with holding the piping bag then do try this item you will be pleasantly surprised.

Really easy to use!! ”
First used this product to decorate some cake pops with an tricky design and it was really easy to use and control much more so than just an ordinary piping bag!
