I was wondering if anyone knew of a website where it showed step by steps for figure piping of animals or people. Just using buttercream icing. I've seen a few, but just wondering where I could find more.
Thanks for any help,
Wilton site has that on their site. Check out Wilton.com. I don't remember where it is but I'm sure you won't have problems finding it.
I'm big time in to figure piping and can surprisingly rarely find anything on-line. There are tons and tons of books on the subject, though.
Here is the direct link to the Wilton figure piping page:
Scroll down and you'll see the options.
I really wish there were an entire site devoted to nothing but figure piping. I've also been wanting Figure Piping Ideas for Cupcakes and Larger Cakes by Roland Winbeckler.
Does anyone have this book? I'm wondering how it is.
thanks for the replies. I did find the Wiltons stuff, thanks it certainly helps. I too would love to find an entire site just for figure piping.
thanks again for the help
I've been looking at the Winbeckler books, also. There are several of them and they all seem to have 24 pages. Is there really enough info in just 24 pages to justify paying $12-$15?
There is also a good handful here... http://www.ladycakes.com/sugarcraftarticlesby/sugarcraft_article's.htm
I've never paid attention to that section of the wilton site. Thanks for pointing it out.
Wilton yearbooks have a few figure piping techniques. If you don't have any, you can find several books on ebay.
they also have them in the wilton yearbooks and some of their other books. that''s where i got mine from.
I'm finding once you learn a few basic techniques, it's all the same regardless of what you are piping.
One of the classes offered at The Bakersfield Retreat this year will be figure piping. I absolutely can't wait. Once I learn this basics I'll be good to go. At least this is how it worked for me when learning modeling figurines out of fondant/gumpaste.
That gives me an idea. My local cake supply store offers classes all the time. I saw a class for figure piping but I don't know when its going to start. I need to check it out before its too late.
