I really wanna buy a cupcake decoratin set. what should I go for? have any of you had good/bad experiences with brands? and which tips are essential to have? i know they're kind of exepensive, so thought i'd go check with all of you guys, before i ordered one..
oh yeah, it'd be the best if it can be ordered over the internet..

thanks!

What's a cupcake decorating set? As in the stuff where you buy ready-made icing in one of those squirty tubes?

I'd say that a cupcake decorating kit involves a bowl, a wooden spoon and a teaspoon :D
But then I haven't made the fancy american-style ones with loads of squirty icing yet. Do you mean an icing gun for piping the icing on?

I think what Smoothie means is a piping bag and lots of nozzles. I got a really cheapo version in the supermarket that only cost me a few Euros. Have you had a look in your local supermarket?

There are some icing sets here (http://www.cakecraftshop.co.uk/) including bags with "larger nozzles for piping meringue and potato", which I'm guess ing should work. this page (http://www.jane-asher.co.uk/sugarcraft_products.asp?cat=Equipment&sub=Icing%20and%20Food%20Bags) on the Jane Asher website (which has TONS of cake making stuff in general) lists a few different icing options as well.

Basically, I put "cake decorating" into Google and got a lot of results... :)

ETA - oh, but you weren't asking for where to get them were you, you was asking for experiences with.. Sorry, can't help you - nowhere round here sells the kits and I haven't wanted to buy something without seeing it unless there is no other option.

I bought a kit from Tesco's this evening for less than two quid - it's a reusable bag and four nozzles, but haven't tried it yet... :)
