Demerits of The Taiker Cake Decorating Supplies
No man-made product can ever be expected to be perfect. That’s why we’ll mention this one demerit that we noticed in the course of our research.
There were a number of complaints about the springform pans; some complained of leakage while others complained of the nonstick coating wearing off.
We believe that there are ways around these issues. Do not use any abrasive object to clean the baking pans; that way they would last longer. On the issue of leakage, you can consult some YouTube videos on how to line a springform pan with foil. That should take care of the leakage.
Customer Opinions of the Taiker Cake Decorating Supplies
We went in search of what customers are saying about this product in order to ascertain whether it was worth buying. And here’s a snippet of some customers’ opinions.
Many of the 5-star reviews that came in were because of the price of the set. A lot of customers were pleased with the price of the set considering the number of functional tools in it.
Good Customer Service
Another factor that made customers rate the product positively is the great customer service of the brand. All those who had any interaction with the seller were pleased with the customer care they received.
In addition to the price of this set, another reason for a positive is the composition of the set. The fact that a beginner can pick up this tool and produce a fully decorated professional looking cake is highly appreciated. The removal of the hassle of looking for individual tools is a great advantage and it earned the product a 5-star rating.
One major factor that cost theTaiker Cake Decorating Supplies some stars is the set of springform pans. Many customers were not happy with the performance of the springform pans. Although this wasn’t a deal breaker for them, if affected their rating of the set.
