    Hi I love yr recipes n clear instructions. I tried this but find it hard to pipe out design using piping bag and it burst. How do u pipe so nicely?

      You need to beat your butter/sugar longer, say 2-3 minutes. Try to time yourself, I did. From the time of beating the butter/sugar till mixing the rest of the ingredients, should take you 5-6 minutes. That’s including the time to scrap down the butter half way through beating.:P Hope it helps.

    Hi Jeannie. such beautiful piping! I particularly love the wreath design – may i know which tip you use pls?


    • jeannietay said

      Hi Wendy, that is Wilton 1M tip.


  3. Hi I was wondering if its 1 tbsp or 1 tsp of vanilla extract, cos 1 tbsp seems excessive.


    • jeannietay said

      It’s 1 tablespoon but you can add only a tsp if you wish.
