ISO cookie decorating supplies

heypielady Dec 16, 2010 05:21 AM

I'm taking a break from pies to make christmas cookies. I have pastry bags, I have food coloring gel but the one thing I always have trouble finding is a fine enough piping tip for making a thin line with royal icing. The little four-pack of tips you can get at the grocery store just doesn't cut it.

The cake decorating store next to Verna's donut (Verna's Cake Decorating?) was my old go-to but that's closed.

Any suggestions?

Preferably in Cambridge, Somerville, Boston, Belmont or Lexington.

    How about Burlington? Sur La Table in the mall has piping tips of many sizes.

      Any craft store will have these...Michael's, AC Moore etc.

        iParty also carries a big selection of the Wilton tips if that's easier for you to get to. I was recently at Sur La Table in Burlington and saw a big selection of baking pans but not a ton of tips FYI.

          Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. I went to Ben Franklin in Belmont this weekend. They had the same four-set you can get at most grocery stores but not good ones like Wilton.
