I don't use Wilton ones but got some from CK that has a screw cap that can take the plastic piping tips.

jgifford: you don't need a turntable! Just hold the pop horizontally and spin the stick. icon_smile.gif

Hope that helps! Good luck!

Thanks again to everyone for the feedback! It really helps!!!

Okay, so I also am going to have to go with the tough crowd. I think, based off the photo in your gallery, it's beautiful. And if I go off everything I see on your blog site, I am sure it was more then stunning. I LOVE your stuff!

I disagree with everyone. I like that pink with the black and white. You can never go wrong with any accent color to black and white. My wedding colors were red, black, and white so obviously I like the b&w theme. Here I think this shade of pink softens the contrast between the b&w and I even like the hydrangeas as the color ties in the softness of the pink and compliments it as well as they tie in with the fluffiness of the tissue paper pomanders at the top. I love the look overall and if I had found you at one of the many bridal shows I went to while planning my wedding, I can honestly say I would have booked you! Keep up the amazing work!!

You did a beautiful job on your arrangement and presentation. Is that a touch of pale pink I see to go with the b&w? I personally love this color combination, especially for a wedding. A pop of brighter color maybe would have been more eye catching and maybe a little more festive.

I love your black and white dessert table, maybe even a little more than the blue one, are you talking about feedback on here, or at the bridal expo? I noticed a lot of people favorited the blue one, I think with cc it depends on the time you put your picture in because if someone doesnt specifically search for your cake they only see it in the recent photos section and Im pretty sure most people just look at the first or second section of that, I've seen really nice cakes that must have somehow gone unoticed because they only have been favorited by a few people. I will admit that when I post a cake that is viewed and favorited a lot it makes me feel really good, especially from here since there are so many great decorators on this site icon_biggrin.gif

I agree that your table display was beautiful. I also agree that the pink was washed away by the black. If you had used hot pink instead of light pink it would have popped. Even a bright lime green would have been pretty against the black and white. Also the hydrangeas were just there. They were pretty...and I love hydrangeas...but if they weren't white-white, I would have gone with something like hot pink gerbera daisies....if you could find them that is! But it was beautiful none-the-less! thumbs_up.gif

Beautiful work, clean set-up, but colorwise - boring. After looking at the display my eyes kept going to the hydrangeas on either side and that's not where you want your customer's eyes to go. Not trying to be brutal, just brutally honest. Hugs, Denise

Your work is beautiful! I think a black and white theme is very formal and it's been pretty popular in weddings lately. The one thing I noticed that seemed a little distracting to me was the black back drop. It seemed a little heavy. I also think the hydrangeas were pretty and matched the vanilla cupcake, but it might have blended a little better had they been pink to match the other pink items. Overall it was lovely! I think it was just an off day!

You are very talented in everything you do. I have one of your pictures saved already and I'm glad I looked at the rest. You did a wonderful job. I think the black and white is formal so it's a good example for a wedding but the light pink shows it could be for a birthday as well.

I'm also thinking the hydrangeas were not quite the right accent. Everything else was black, white, or that pale pink. The flowers were yellowish, and didn't really match anything else. A pale pink flower might have pulled out that pink on the cake.

That being said, that is an absolutely beautiful arrangement of goodies. The swirl of color on your cake pops is perfect, and the fantasy flowers on your cake really pop.

Okay, now that I've seen all the pics., I don't like the hydrangeas. I love the shade of pink, so I am thinking maybe peonies should have been used. I still think you table is beautiful and you have a great eye for design. I can't put a table like that togther!

I think it is beautiful! i think the pink is just right. i think hot pink/black/white is over done. this was simple and elegant.
