Etsy Love

Today, I just had to share a positive experience I had recently with an etsy seller.

As you all know, I enjoy baking cupcakes. I have always used regular store bought frosting tips from Michael's (like the 1M star tip), but have wondered how bakeries and other baking bloggers made their frosting so pretty, fluffy, and tall. I stumbled across a tutorial from the blog Decorate This! that was all about frosting tips and the different looks you can achieve by using extra large tips.

From that point forward, I began my search for the tips. I found a couple of places that sell them, but either they were sold out of one style or their shipping was too expensive to make it worth buying from them. Luckily, I came across etsy seller, BakersBlingShop. I ordered the cupcake decorating set, which included all four styles of the the extra large tips, as well as 12 pastry bags (I think the cost was around $11)!

I was so impressed when I received my order. Not only was it packaged beautifully, but they also included a sample set of mini cupcake liners, a coupon code for my next order, and a personal handwritten note! On top of that, there was an extra tip included (not sure if this was a mistake or not).

I can't wait to try out these new tips and see what kind of different looks I can achieve with them. Hopefully I can decorate some cupcakes this weekend!

I've had many positive experiences with etsy sellers, but this is one of the best yet! If you are looking for unique cupcake liners, decorating tips, packaging items, sprinkles, etc. then please visit BakersBlingShop!

Thanks for sharing! I have been looking at various big tips online, but never placed an order. I'm going to now! Love the new blog design, btw.

This is great! After my sisters wedding on Sat, and I have my life back, I'm dying to try to decorate cupcakes! Thanks for sharing!

Way cute! I just bought my first "icing" kit from pampered chef, hope it makes me cupcakes look better than before.

yum! Even if I had those pretty things, my cupcakes would not look like that.

How come you are not 300 lbs?

I'm amazed by you.

Love the different ways you can ice a cupcake! How fun!

That is so sweet of her to write you a personal message. I LOVE when etsy sellers do that! I try to remember to do that anytime I sell things! :)
