Bake It Pretty is a great website for those who love to bake! It's a supply store where you can find tons of fun items to inspire you to bake up a storm and get creative! It's great for beginners like me too! I got a chance to review the "Best Ever Cupcake Icing Kit" from them and I was happy to try it because I usually just slather on icing and it looks like a child did it! So I wanted to put it to the test and see how easy it can be to make pretty frosted cupcakes!
First off, before we get started, look at how ADORABLE this packaging is! It showed up wrapped like a little gift! Love when companies put the cute little touches on everything! Inside the box was the five piping tips and the 16" pastry bag you seen pictured above. I also got the colorful cupcake liners as well! All you need to go get is whatever icing you want and cupcake mix of course!
All I had to do was put one of the FIVE tip designs you want to use into the piping bag and then scoop the frosting into the bag. Then I squeezed it at the top of the bag and the icing starts coming out super easily! (see photo above) I had WAY to much fun with this kit. I was following atutorial video on their website on how to use each tip for different designs, and tried to use each one to see the differences.
I am showing you some photos of the funky designs I came up with. Now be easy on me, it's my first time ever using a piping bag for icing! Although, if I may say so myself, I think they came out very fun and pretty looking! The only issue I ran into is wanting to change the flavor/color of the icing in between cupcakes and wanting to change the tip design. I wish I had an extra bag so I could use two separate colors/flavors/designs without having to make a mess like I did because I had to stick my fingers in the bag to get out the tip to put a different one in, but it was okay because making a mess is part of the fun!
As you can see from my beaaautiful cupcakes that I did a pretty good job for my first time! This kit is so much fun and I'm happy I had the chance to try it out. I would definitely recommend this website and kit to anyone looking to get into baking or just have a fun night baking with friends or children. These were gone a lot faster than the time it took me to make them! I posted a picture on my Facebook and everyone wanted me to bring them some! I will definitely be using this kit when I make cupcakes to bring to a party! Everyone will be impressed!
