How To Pipe 3 Beautiful Festive Buttercream Designs

With Abi Mancktelow

Difficulty Easy

Broken Video?

Join Abi and learn how she creates several gorgeous festive piped buttercream texture designs using a variety of piping tubes and piping techniques with plenty of bling! Perfect for that Christmas celebration. The latest cake decorating trend is all about bringing together mixed piping techniques accentuated with clashing or complimentary colours and textures to make each design stand out individually which continue to be very popular in cakes and cupcakes for all occasions. The tips used in this lesson (see shopping list) are highlighted throughout the video as Abi pipes a stunning modern rosette tree design for the side of a cake, a swirled wreath design suitable for the top of a cake, a Christmas bauble design with piped stars and rosettes and finally some mini wreath cupcakes, all adorned with a selection of Christmas sprinkles from our Sattina range. If you loved this video and want to learn about more piping ideas and buttercream techniques, then check out our other tutorials below.
