Needed help with piping

Post by gardenlaw » Thu Mar 17, 2011 8:31 am

I made a complete mess of piping choux pastry for chocolate eclairs. I watched Raymond Blanc and used a piping bag with a 1/2 inch nozzle. They came all shapes and sizes from tear shaped to things that looked like dogwalkers hell.
Any advice?

Piping is one of those things that looks easy until you try to do it yourself. I think it's easier to use an icing piper that's like a plunger and you push the end down. (if you understand what I mean). They're easier to control.
Keep calm and carry on.

I should really be getting myself out of bed instead of trawling round the net :lol: I must lose hours of my life when I could be doing housework
