8.) Rose Nail – To pipe buttercream flowers on found here
9.) Piping Tips – For add details with buttercream like boarders, names, flowers and swirls of frosting on a cupcake – found here
10.) Piping Bag – Used along with the piping tips the piping bag hold your buttercream frosting – found here
11.) Food Color – Used to change the color of food. I prefer to use gel food color because it is very concentrated so it doesn’t water down your product. – found here
12.) Viva Paper Towels – To be used with the Viva smoothing method. I love this method when working on a round cake so you end up with a very smooth surface.
13.) Cake Wheel – You place your cake on it so you can reach all sides easily. This is a standard Wilton wheel but if you don’t want to spend the money on one you can use a lazy Susan what doesn’t have a lip on it. found here
