  • 5 x plastic piping bags
  • 5 x smooth piping couplers
  • Piping tips in No. 1, 2, 3,102,104, 352
  • 1 x flower nail
  • Baking paper squares
  • Cookie sheets
  • A cake turntable
  • A spatula
  • Buttercream icing in 3 different peachy colours, plus yellow and pale green (your own recipe or our Buttercream Icing premix)
