Fabulous Flower Tips Class

The Ultimate Guide to Using your Russian Piping Tips

Struggling with using your Russian Piping tips?

Are you just getting blob after blob after blob?

Yup that's me too - in the beginning.

And most likely when you got your tips there were no instructions on how to use them. And most importantly how the piped flower would look like for each corresponding tip.

And what about those extra weird tips, the C-shaped, triangles and dots, you probably have no idea what to use it for.

You were so excited when you first got your tips but then lost interest because you struggled to even make ONE decent looking flower.

Those videos make it look sooo damn easy. So you put away your tip and it's probably living in the back of a drawer now.

Well, time to bust out your tips once again. Coz in this class I will show you how to finally use your tips properly so you are not getting blob after blob after blob and get flowers like these -

Hi there, I'm Darlene, baker, cake maker and creator of www.make-fabulous-cakes.com. It's a website that I started back in 2008 where I share my adventures in cake making, recipes and tips about cake decorating. I've been making cakes since 1997, and back then there was no internet, so I had to teach myself how to decorate cakes from books and magazines. Learn more about me here. Now with the help of the internet, my goal here is to help you shorten that learning process. Come and join me in my kitchen and let's start making that fabulous cake!
