If you're anything like us, you've amassed quite a collection (some might call it a hoard) of piping tips and nozzles. We even have tips we've never used even once, just on the off-off-off chance we might need them.
Sure, the cake decorating world is full of fancy piping tips, clever cutters and specialty tools you can use to create amazing effects. But that doesn't mean you have to buy out the store to get started. In fact, it's way better to start with the basics: pick up just what you need to nail that perfectly smooth, flawless fondant or buttercream surface. Once you've mastered that key skill, the rest is just... icing.
