Flower Basket Cake Using Russian Piping Tips/How to Use Russian Piping Tips Tutorial

How to Use Russian Piping Tips Tutorial 
Hello Friends, 
       Wish You All a Very Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year!
         This Triple Chocolate moist cake is my 2019's last bake. I  decorated the baked cake into a flower basket using Russian Piping Tips to say goodbye to 2019 and welcome to 2020. I found these tips are fun and easy to use.


 It was in my to-do list for many days, and on occasion of the new year, I gave it a try and used these Russian piping tips and made these flower basket cake. Buttercream flowers are a favorite decoration of mine, but I had always made mine from scratch using Wilton petal tips.

 I made flowers using the Wilton method, but these tips make things go much faster. Which will be useful on busy festive days when I have a cake to deliver the next day. I just picked up a cake decorating obsession, and part of it was learning the different piping skills. This is the first cake I have made playing with a couple of Russian piping tips. 



  I wanted to learn to decorate my baked goodies(Cakes and cupcakes) with the Russian piping tips. I think the biggest challenge is getting the right consistency with your buttercream. After you figure out the consistency, the amount of pressure on the bag is the next technique to learn, but that will become clear very quickly. I was pretty pleased with the results of a first try. And with some practice, I am confident that I can pull off something I'm proud to present to other people. I'm delighted with this Russian piping tips. 


What are the Russian Piping Tips
  • These are the tips that allow you to pipe complex shapes in one pass. 
  • There are many different types of tips that create roses, tulips, daisies, swirl shapes.

How to Use Russian Piping Tips 
  • Get a set of Russian piping tips and choose one to use, the one shown will make a Tulips, and place in a piping bag with the tip snipped off.
  • Divide buttercream(I have used my favorite condensed milk buttercream) into batches and add food coloring(I have used pink and white for tulips, green for leaves, and copper for basket) whichever you are using.
  • Using a spatula, apply a layer of buttercream to the inside of the piping bag.
  • Fill the bag with another color of buttercream.
  • Pipe the flowers, make sure to pipe just above the surface, squeeze, and the buttercream will come down to make contact with the cake.
  • Continue squeezing while you pull up to build the flower and finish by pulling up without squeezing. 
  • Once done with tulips, pipe leaves to fill in the blank spaces between the flowers.
  • Fit the decorating bag with basketweave decorating tip 47.
  • Use a Basketweave technique to turn it into beautiful baskets.
