Another positive that keeps coming up is that the instruction guide is very useful and easy to follow for beginners.

The Not So Good

One cake decorator was very happy with the kit, apart from the pastel colors of the caddy, and the fact that some of the longer/larger Wilton tips don’t fit in the case and allow it to close.

Reviews of Kuhn Rikon Cookie and Cupcake Decorating Set

Kuhn Rikon Cookie and Cupcake Decorating Set


New From: $23.95 USD In Stock

Kuhn Rikon have come up with a great all round solution for decorating cookies and cupcakes.  It includes 4 squeezy decorating bottles for controlling 4 different icing colors, 5 decorating nozzles and 1 spatula.  Easy to use for kids and adults alike.

So what do customers think of this set?

The Good

Customers loved the versatility of being able to swap nozzles between the bottles.

Another good feature is that you can stand the bottles up between use which is less messy than using pastry bags.

A lot of people bought this set to be able to use with their kids, and the comments seem to show that the kids found them easy and fun to use.

The Not So Good

Some people found that the bottle cracked easily.  They also said that the bottles were to small to hold enough icing.

Another improvement that could be made is some sort of storage for all of the bits and pieces.

One complaint was that the openings were too small on the top making the bottles hard to fill, and also hard to clean.

Tips From Customers

To fill the bottles easily, put the icing in a ziplock bag, cut off one of the corners and squessze into the bottle.

Customer Reviews of Wiltons Cup Cake Decorating Set

Make the funkiest, prettiest and most ooh-and-ahh worthy cupcakes!

The set includes four of Wilton’s tips – 1M, 22, round tip 12 and Bismark tip 230. You also get 8 heavy duty plastic disposable icing bags, and an easy to follow instruction booklet.

So what do the customers think?

Pros

Even customers who said that they were complete beginners and who had never decorated cupcakes before said that this set and it’s instructions were “idiot-proof”. Easy to use with fantastic results.

The decorating tips that are included are a good place to start – you can create a variety of beautiful and professional looking cupcakes, and even fill them with delicious jams, buttercreams and other fillings.

The disposable bags that are included are tough and durable and stand up to inexperienced squeezing!

Cons

One customer said that she found it easy to use, but messy. Another said that the bags that she received had small holes in them, and the icing came out and made a mess. One person felt that the bags were too small, and would have preferred larger sized bags with the kit.

Another customer said that she felt that the kit should have contained couplers.  She said that it worked fine without them, but would have been even better with them.

Tips From Customers

One customer said that when the disposable plastic bags that are included in the kit have been used up, she uses ziplock bags, cuts the corner off the bag, and inserts the tips. Cheap and easy!
