AI'm curious if anyone has any suggestions or tips as to what brand of decorating supplies to use? I've found a Wilton brand kit for what seems like a good deal, but I am not sure of the quality. Any tips?
AWilton=crap Anything by ateco is good
Wilton tips are stainless steel and are just fine. I'm a professional decorator and have no issues whatsoever with the majority of their basic products. I have some specialty items from other manufacturers, but my basic rounds, shells, etc. are all Wilton.
The easy availability of their product line is a real advantage and when you can use a coupon at a hobby store for 40-50% off an entire kit, it's a great savings.
Just fine, but they're nickel-plated brass.
All of my tips are Wilton.
I have a set of Wilton tips and like them fine. I am a hobby baker so they are not in constant use. I do hand wash them well and dry them with a towel.
Apparently, Wilton does make tips of both nickel coated brass AND stainless steel :
I don't know which are necessarily which, but again, I've had no problem with them.
