Review: Master Class Biscuit and Icing Set

If you’re looking to up your baking game, the Master Class Biscuit and Icing Set is worth putting on your wish list. We sent it to the lovely Chef Sam for a trial run and here are her thoughts (plus her simple butter biscuit recipe).
This trigger action, stainless steel biscuit and icing gun comes with a wide variety of attachments for different biscuit shapes and piped icing. It’s extremely easy and fun to use and will have you turning out impressive biscuits in minutes.
How to use it to make fancy biscuits:

Ingredients

300g butter, softened
165g sugar
2 eggs
500g flour

1. Make your biscuits by creaming together the butter, sugar and eggs. Mix these together well and then add half the flour. Using your hands, keep mixing and adding flour until the dough is no longer sticky.

2. Now for the fun part. Keep the stainless steel tube secured in the handle of the gun. Open the top nozzle and feed your dough into the tube.
3. Insert the desired biscuit cutter into the ring and place onto the tube.
4. Before you begin, squeeze the trigger so that the dough is against the cutter.

 5. Place the ring against a greased baking tray and squeeze once. You should feel the mechanism click as you do this.
6. Bake in a pre-heated oven (180˚C) for approximately 15 minutes and allow to cool before munching.
Tips:
If your dough is too sticky, it will not release properly. In this case, add more flour to your mixture.

How to use the icing gun to decorate cakes:

1. Use butter cream frosting or royal icing. If using fondant, soften it with a little water first
2. Fill the stainless steel tube with the icing.
3. Hold the gun over your cake and squeeze the trigger slowly. You can also hold the metal release device down, squeezing the icing out more gently.
Try out different nozzles for different effects and with a little practice you’ll soon be producing professional-looking cookies and cakes.

The Master Class Biscuit and Icing Set comes with:

  • 1 x heavy duty, easy to use icing gun with an adjustable trigger action nozzle
  • 8 x stainless steel nozzles
  • 13 x stainless steel biscuit cutter templates

A big thanks to Chef Sam and photographer Jessica Commaille.

    Hi, can you specify capacity of gun please? Also when you fill with icing can you suck up like a syringe or do you pour in? – excuse if this is stupid question, all new to me!
    Thanks, Vicky

      Hello Vicky

      No such things as stupid questions when it comes to baking :) We’re double checking on the quantity for you but the icing and the cookie dough are both scooped in to the back.

      Hello again Vickey

      We finally heard back from our suppliers and they’ve informed us that this biscuit and icing gun holds a volume of 225ml :)

      Hope that helps – the information is now on the product page too :) Have a great day further.
