Because the KopyKake will have to wait until Christmas, I bought myself a little birthday present.
I was so excited I stumbled across these. In my short cookieing (new word?) experience, I have learned that most good products have to be bought offline (or is it online?)
Most websites have comparable prices and shipping estimates; however, not all carry the same products.
I've talked about PME tips before. They're the stainless steel, no seam, rust proof tips made in England.
The supply website I usually buy from carries them in sizes 1-3. My first order included two size 1's and one size 1.5. They're my favorite tips for writing and detail work.
Then, this past weekend, I had some free time and went website hopping. In my searches, I found another decorating supply website that carries many different products...including more PME tips.
I added 4 to my collection.
Two size 00's, a fine calligraphy tip, and a medium calligraphy tip.
Calligraphy tips? I NEVER knew! It really doesn't take alot to make me happy!
I included a picture of my PME size 1 tip (on the far left) for comparison. I always thought the size 1 tip was the smallest Wilton and PME made. I used to own a 00 size Ateco tip, but somehow that's the only one I've managed to lose.
You can barely see the opening on the size 00 tip (2nd one in from the left).
I think it will be perfect for lace techniques and straight lines.
Now...for those calligraphy tips. I can't wait to try writing with them. Look closely. The openings are more of straight line than a circle. This will make the writing flatter and less tubular.
Bring on the piping!!!
Oh and in case you're wondering, I bought them from Global Sugar Art.
