Pastry nozzles are great when decorating that beautiful cupcake, right? I know that the task takes practice, but the right tip helps a lot at this time too. Wilton’s are the top of the line in this area (in fact, you can trust all the brand’s products) and Barra Doce, for example, has several options for nozzles and complete kits. In fact, if you want to know more about the types of nozzles and what decorations they serve, click here to read a post I made a while ago. Other products widely used in confectionery are easy to find in these specialized stores. Remember that acetate, which Dani always uses to prepare taller and more structured cakes, like the Bem Casado Cake, the Strawberry Ombré or the Nutella Mini Naked Cake? They range from R $ 10.90 a package with five sheets and go up to R $ 25.90 (strip with 15cm). These are the ones, look:
A very useful tool for confectioning cakes is that long spatula that looks more like a ruler, you know? There is Barra Doce! They add a professional touch to the finish of your favorite cake. Click here to see the models; D
