{Video} Cookie Decorating Tools & How to Fill a Piping Bag

Share it!   

Hi! Hope your week is going well!

Today, I’d like to say thanks to you for visiting my pink blog; I’m so grateful to have such lovely people commenting, asking questions, and sharing experiences here as well. Sweetopia has become such a labour of love for me; thank you for dropping by.

I took some time the last few days to put a video together on filling a piping bag and my favorite cookie decorating tools because I’ve gotten lots of questions from you about cookie decorating basics. So, in the next little while, I’m going to try and start from the beginning by doing videos on making royal icing, making sugar cookie dough etc., and am also slowly working on an in-depth Kopykake Video Tutorial.

Today’s post is going to be short and sweet, because seeing how a piping bag is filled, and seeing my favorite cookie decorating tools, is probably much easier than me ‘splaining them.

Still working on the sound issues (hope it was better this time), but hope you liked the tips.

You’re welcome to leave a comment below or on my facebook page here if you’ve got any comments, questions or would like to share some tips of your own!

    Thanks for such a helpful tutorial. Do you mind me asking where you got the yellow mat with the piping designs from? I have been looking for seething like that forever!!!

    Hi @ Kellie: Yes, I got it from a local gift shop down the road, but I’m sure you can find it elsewhere… I just need the name of the company, which I will check for you, once all my stuff is unpacked from cubes/storage. (we are renovating and most of my house is in storage cubes in the driveaway). If you notice some posts in the next few months where I post about the renovation being finshed, please ask me here again. xo

    HI @ Maria in NJ, interesting! I haven’t seen the 1s yet. I magnified the page as much as I could, and still couldn’t read what it said beside 1s, in the chart. I would call them, yes, and would LOVE if you would let me know what they said!
    My best guess is that it’s slightly larger than the #1, kind of like PME has a #1.5.
