I went on another course at the very lovely Cherry Blossom Bakery. Along with two of my daughters I spent two hours mastering swirls, roses and other piping techniques. I have made cupcakes many times before but I really wanted to learn how to pipe a rose swirl so that was my main aim.
All I needed to know was that I needed a Wilton 2D nozzle and to pipe from the centre. Easy when you know how!
A couple of days later my daughter and I decided to get some practice so armed with our new nozzles and non-slip icing bags (why have I only just discovered these wonderful bags?) we baked a batch of cakes and iced the lot. What do you think of the results? I have to admit we were rather pleased with ourselves!
