For cake decorating, pastry bag and piping tips/nozzle.

Ateco makes the better tips

PME makes the best for fine lines for cookie decorating.

Disposable pastry bags at least 18” are best.

Couplers to change out a tip are useful.

Nearly all Wilton products are poor quality, I wouldn’t waste your money.

Thank you for your reply,

So your saying it's not worth buying a icing gun?

Yup. Absolutely not worth buy. I have never once seen one in use in any commercial kitchen or in any class.

ateco makes a couple of sets. The also set individual tips.

Example of individual tips


Having at least one large 1/2” open star and close star is good to make rosettes on cakes and cupcakes

example of open star that comes in various sizes

Example of anti-slip disposable pastry bags. I never use any pastry bag less than 18”
