You are a always up with the newest trends, and give great tutorials about them. After being called snooty for not being a fan of the Russian tips, I decided buy some to have on hand for myself, and a set for my mother(she likes things quick and easy). Thank you for the tutorial.
@littlejewel I felt the same way, like maybe it was cheating. But I'm impressed with the results when you add some artistry to using them, especially with bag striping. And the way I feel about all buttercream piping, choosing your colors makes so much difference! There is an art to using these tips. I love the final result, and you can't dispute the efficiency. I ordered the biggest set, can't wait to play with them. It helps that my family are the type who eat buttercream right out of the bowl, they're going to love all that IMBC!
Thanks a million. I purchased a set of these but have yet to get them out and use them because I didn't know how. Your a lifesaver. - Cindya Lovett
Love these tips.
Your video makes it much easier and neater in getting the colors in the flower center than the traditional striping the bag method.
These look very pretty. And I'm not intending to be a critique by any means, but I'm kinda thinkin' that's an awful lot of frosting someone's just gonna scrape off the top. Who really eats all that frosting?
whats a good recipe for the buttercream t use wit thease tips ..?
the result is very nice, they just need some practice.
I think it does depend on what kind of buttercream is used. Do they not answer any of the commented questions? I would also like to know about the buttercream used. I've heard IMBC works best but whatever they used in this video looks great! Thanks for video!
I believe it's a very thick buttercream. At the beginning it says to add powdered sugar to your buttercream to make it stiffer. I do not see how IMBC or a non-crusting regular buttercream would hold the petals up. Also, the part in the video where he makes the striped "insert" for the pastry bag...you can tell it's a very stiff buttercream, as it doesn't stick to the plastic wrap. He can almost form that shape with his hands.
What I want to know is...what size tips are for cuppies and what are for cakes? I am assuming you need a small one for the cuppies...?
Where can I purchase the piping tips? There is no information on the site.
Mimascakes ~~ These are available online. Global Sugar Art (GSA - the ones who did the tutorial above) have them available--here's the link for the GSA:
Wow beautiful. Love the colours. Anyone know how to get the pink shade? What's the colour?
It's probably not IMBC. Chef Allen of GSA probably used the kind of buttercream he sells on his website. They're more likely American buttercream - not my liking...too sweet if I have to eat that much of it on my cupcake. I once saw a video done by Renee Conner using one of these tips with SMBC. It came out pretty good. If anyone else is successful at using these tips with either IMBC or SMBC, please let us know.
Does anyone know of a coupler for the russian tips? My set came with the triple coupler but I would love a single coupler to easily change tips without wasting another bag!
Thank you very much for giving this awesome post, it is a great way to fully enjoy it.
