Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are decorating tubes and how are they used?

    • Decorating tubes, also known as piping tips or nozzles, are small, cone-shaped tools that attach to the end of a piping bag. They are used in baking to apply icing, cream, or other fillings in specific shapes and designs on cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and other pastries.
  • What types of decorating tubes does Baker's Authority offer?

    • Baker's Authority offers a wide range of decorating tubes including round tips for simple lines and dots, star tips for creating rosettes and shells, leaf tips for leafy and ruffled effects, petal tips for making flowers, and specialty tips for creating intricate patterns and designs.
  • How do I choose the right decorating tube for my baking project?

    • The right decorating tube will depend on the design you want to achieve. For example, use a round tip for writing or making dots, a star tip for borders or rosettes, or a petal tip for flower decorations. If you're new to decorating, consider starting with a variety pack to experiment with different designs.
  • How do I clean and maintain my decorating tubes?

    • After use, remove the decorating tube from the piping bag and wash it in warm soapy water. Use a small brush to clean the interior, rinse thoroughly, and dry it well to prevent rusting. Never use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads, as they can damage the tube.
  • Can I use decorating tubes with any type of icing?

    • Decorating tubes can be used with a variety of icing types, but the results may vary. Stiffer icings, like royal icing or buttercream, hold their shape well and are often used for more intricate designs. Softer icings, like cream cheese or whipped cream icing, may not hold intricate designs as well.
  • What materials are Baker's Authority's decorating tubes made of?

    • Our decorating tubes are primarily made of stainless steel. Stainless steel tubes are durable and maintain their shape even under heavy use. All our decorating tubes are food-safe and designed for ease of use and cleaning.
  • Do I need any other tools or accessories to use decorating tubes?

    • In addition to the decorating tubes, you'll need a piping bag to hold and dispense your icing. You may also want to consider a coupler, which allows you to change the decorating tube without emptying the piping bag. Other helpful accessories include a flower nail for creating icing flowers, and a decorating comb for adding texture.
  • How do I attach a decorating tube to a piping bag?

    • First, trim the end of the piping bag to fit your decorating tube. Then, insert the tube into the bag until it is snug. If you're using a coupler, put the coupler inside the bag first, then attach the decorating tube to the coupler from the outside, and secure it with the coupler ring. Fill the bag with icing, twist the open end closed, and you're ready to start decorating.
