i recently saw some beautiful icing tips by Idan Shahar who I think is in Russia through my Facebook feed. Has anyone seen these yet and know how to purchase them? I can't find my link to order.
These were made in Russia
I don't know their link, but I've heard they stopped taking PayPal.
Wow, those are really interesting! Never seen anything like those before.
Missy227, yep that's who I was looking for. Now to try and order some of those tops.
A cake supply store got a group order together a few weeks ago for those, but thing went bad for them. Something happened with PayPal and the company [something about the Russian banking system] and long story short...she had to refund all their money...which was going to a take a bit because PayPal had to first refund it to her.
Shame...the tips produce nice effects, but sometime international ordering just doesn't work out.
Cookie4, my daughter just sent me this link:
Missy227 - that's perfect. Looks like someone but a lot from Russia and decided to sell to/through Amazon at 10X the price. But, at least I can get my ands on a few of them. Thanks for the link!
Yeah, $15 for one tip is pretty steep!
Russian icing tips set are so beautiful! I have seen some my the baking supplies online store selling it here in my country but it's very expensive. But I would try to ask if I can buy only of my preferred choice of Russian tips. This decorating tips is very trendy now and I think it's a big competitor for Wilton tips.
Here are some all for $25.00 total. I have ordered from Aliexpress before but it will take awhile to ship.
They also sell them on E bay.
I just bought the Russian Tips as $1.12 each in eBay. I waiting for them. I got 7 for a little bit over $7 with free shipping.
I see how everyone is all atwitter about these............I watched a video someone posted in another thread.......I'm not impressed. I don't think the resulting flowers are all that nice. I'll stick to the OLD-fashioned way thank you very much :)
I agree with you. It is something new and exciting, but the little I have seen so far appears to me that it might be especially appealing to those who are new to flower creation, and also perhaps for large supermarket type bakeries that want to make different looking flowers very quickly.
I find them interesting because they are different, and also as I have arthritis and diminished strength in my hands, I could do a "whatever" cake quickly. I just bake and decorate for fun nowadays.
Oh how I understand the diminished strength in our hands. I have a big cake coming up next weekend and I'm already panicking because my hands hurt all the time & I don't have the equipment any more. I only have 5 tips and a small off-set spatula to work with making this 1/2 sheet pluss cake.
Oh, I wish I was there so I could give you a big hug and a hand. Haha, a HAND! An arthritic one, I guess!
