A Guide to Choosing Baking Supplies

Your bakery team requires quality baking supplies to complete its work to the highest of standards. That’s why it’s important you carefully research every detail when searching for new products. The team from Zanduco Restaurant Equipment and Supplies want you to have the very best bakery, so they’ve collected some of their tips for choosing quality baking supplies.

Review different piping tips

You’ll notice when you go to review the marketplace, that there are a number of piping tips available for the baking process.

These options include:

  • Open-star tips

Open-star tips are designed with triangular teeth around the opening to create sharp ridges in the frosting. You will require a very thin star tip for lettering work.

  • Closed-star tips

Closed-star tips are designed with a triangular set of teeth that curve inward to create defined ridges. They can be used to create stars, borders, and shells on baked goods.

  • Round Tips

Round tips have a smooth opening and their simplicity means they are very easy to use for even inexperienced bakers. They also come in a range of sizes. Smaller, round tips can be used for swirls and lettering, while larger round tips are a great option for swirled cupcake tops.

  • Ruffle Tips

With their small, thin opening, ruffle tips are generally used for more creative decorative purposes in the bakery field. For example, bakers can use ruffle tips to create garlands and borders.

Our tip options

Zanduco Restaurant Equipment & Supplies carries a number of tip options for baking work. For example, we offer the Closed Star Tip 400, which is designed using seamless stainless steel. We also offer decorating sets, such as the Cake Decorating Set 334, which features 6 decorating tips, 1 coupler, and 1 pastry bag. 

Canvas versus disposable pastry bags

You will also have to decide between canvas and disposable pastry bags when reviewing your product options.

Disposable pastry bags are often the ideal choice for baking applications and they’re also bought in large rolls, so the cost is reduced. Canvas bags are often difficult to work with as they become soiled quickly, leading to potential cross-contamination issues. However, the right one for you will depend upon your personal preference.

What is coupling?

A coupler is a device that allows you to change your decorating tips without changing the pastry bag. The coupler comes in two parts: the base and the ring. This is often an ideal option for those creating numerous baked goods over a short period of time. Consider, for example, the Delrin Coupling ADC2.
