In the picture above- from left to right they are, 1) Large Open Star Tip 2) Large French Tip 3) Large Round Tip
I had SO much trouble finding these-they aren't at any hobby stores, and they DON'T come in the Wilton full icing tip set...I have no idea why not. I couldn't even find them on-line! They aren't normal sized tips. They measure about 3/4" at the end, and are made to do some serious icing! :)
Here are just a couple of pics I took of what they can do...
Round tipIf you compare this quality with the bumpy inconsistency I was getting when I only had a snipped icing bag or zip lock to use as a round tip, here....
The difference is incredible. I mean- For SERIOUSLY! LOOK at this!
If you want to make your baking look instantly professional, Google "wholesale baking supplies" in your city and go pick some of these tips up! Mine were $1.99 a piece, and made by Ateco.
The SECOND thing, I want to share is the INCREDIBLE package I got from my dear friend, and fellow blogger, Amanda!
She sent me a PINK, handmade cupcake apron made by The Handmaiden's Cottage!
The pocket even had my blog name-'Penny Lane'- accented with the fabulous name of her bakery-'The Fancy Lady Gourmet'! I adore it, and wore it already to do the cupcakes pictured above, but I didn't have makeup on, so no pics--tho I will of course take some for my next batch!
She also sent me this cupcake plate that is already in it's place on my dresser! SO cute, right?!
I LOVE them Amanda! You are my cupcake cherub! :)
And-Thank you to everyone for your encouraging words on my last post during this difficult time. :) I guess I will just have to watch more of his stand up to judge more fairly if he's really funny, and trust that he must be a really great family guy if Katy and her family love him...tho it will be hard for me...... :)
Many hugs to everyone! Did ya'll get anything exceptional over the Holidays that you'd like to share?! I'd love to know!
