Piping Bags and Icing Nozzles
Have you ever started baking a cake and realised you don’t quite have all the tools to finish it just how you want? It’s very difficult to create that professional-looking cake without the right equipment to do the job. But the good news is that this Lakeland collection of piping bags, icing nozzles and cake decorating supplies is exactly what you need.
For the perfect finish that is quite literally the icing on the cake, you need a quality piping bag and nozzles. Disposable decorating bags reduce the need for clean-up afterwards, or why not choose a duo colour piping bag for a fun decorating twist? However you’re planning to decorate your cake or baked goodies, this range has everything you need to update your baking cupboard with the best.
Piping bags & icing nozzles
If you’ve never used a piping bag and nozzles to finish a cake before, your baking experience is about to get so much better. So many people use piping nozzles and similar cake decorating supplies because it’s a fairly quick and easy way to create a professional-looking finish on your cake.
And they can also be used for anything from cookies and biscuits to pies and other pastries. Simply add your icing to the bag and select from a huge range of different shapes and designed nozzles to create whatever finish on your icing you desire.
What piping bag is best?
There’s no one right icing bag to choose, it all depends on your preference and the type of icing you like to use to decorate. These handy decorating tools are generally a cone-shaped bag which holds your icing and attaches to a nozzle which sets onto the smallest end. As you squeeze the icing out of the bag and through the nozzle, you can carefully create any design you like on the top of your cake or biscuits.
It’s a fab way to get creative with your baking! Take a look through the Lakeland range and you’ll find handy disposable icing bags that you can discard after use. These might be made from silicone or even parchment paper. Alternatively, why not try a reusable icing bag? Made from either silicone or cotton, you’re free to use it time and time again with a quick wash in between icing sessions.
Choosing piping nozzles
You’ll need a range of icing nozzles depending on the type of finish you require. Russian piping tips are flat-topped piping nozzles that are perfect for creating icing roses, tulips and dainty floral cake decorations. Alternatively, choose a piping nozzle set that has everything you need to make stars, swirls, ribbons and flowers or perfectly piped letters.
The best way to get to grips with using piping nozzles is to simply practice, and practice some more. Remember you don’t have to be a pro to decorate a cake like one!
