Free cake tutorial: How to use Russian Piping Nozzles

Russian Piping Nozzles have been popular for a while. In this quick tip, guest tutor Rachel Hill shows you the simple steps on how to use them. Piping Nozzles can be tricky to get your head around but once you've had a few practices, you'll be flying! 

This week's free tutorial from Pretty Witty Academy, shows you the basis for Russian piping nozzles.  We have multiple buttercream tutorials inside the Academy including one all about piping with floral nozzles. 

Top Tips

  • Make sure you carefully line your piping bag.
  • Each nozzle is slightly different so you can get a really full range of flowers.  
  • You can slightly move the petals after piping so don't panic if they flop over.
