    Where can I find the ‘Cupcake tube nozzle’ ? I had a look on Hobbycraft but I couldn’t find it!
    The cakes look great, can’t wait to give some of them a try.

      Hi Sarah! Sorry for taking so long to respond. Unfortunately the tube nozzle isn’t available on the website as a separate product. However we do stock a 12-piece cupcake decorating set with the nozzle included for £7. You can find it here : http://ow.ly/Tj0pK We hope this helps!
