Hi, I'm new to the forum but wondered if you guys can help me. I've done quite a few cakes uing sugar paste and buttercream but would like to move onto a more detailed tiered cake for my mom's 70th in a months time. I've never had much success with piping bags and wondered if using a 'syringe' with correct nozzles might be an alternative to using the bag??!! I just need to use royal icing to do a few little details like flower centres and I'd like to try a 'snail trail' ( thats what I've seen it called in one of the books- a piped detail around the bottom join of the cake and the board). I'd really appreciate any advice as to whether this might work?
AIf you feel like you have more control with the syringe I don't see why it wouldn't work. I'm partial to a piping bag but that's just a personal preference :)
