For Cake Decorators! Write Tip#s Inside Your Tool Caddy!



If you do cake decorating,then most likely you have a tool caddy "box" for organizing and in some cases [like if you were taking or teaching a cake decorating class] transporting your cake decorating equipment. Well,I have taken all the Wilton classes from Course 1 to Course 4 ,ending with Fondant & Gumpaste and I STILL DON'T REMEMBER which TIP NUMBER is for making shells,stars,writing,etc. So, tonight when I was decorating another cake,I got the idea to put the MOST -FREQUENTLY USED TIP...

More Information:

...NUMBERS on the INSIDE of my tool caddy! That way ,when I flip it UP to see my tools,the TIP NUMBER LIST IS AVAILABLE and I don't have to go searching in my cake decorating books to find WHICH TIP is for which desired effect~star,heart,writing or my favorite~~the shell!

  • My son does the decorating in this house, but sometimes I like to try my hand at it, and he makes it look so easy when he opens his box and takes out just what he needs. I on the other hand fiddle around trying to figure out what is what. So I like this idea of putting a list on the inside of the lid - thanks for the tip!! emoticon - by HEALTHY-NANA

    What helps me decorate more efficiently is to have the same shape tips together, in various sizes. For instances all the piping tips together and all the star tips together. This helps with the small detail work. - by 19ELISE
