Review: Tala 1960's Retro Range - Icing Syringe Set and Cook's Dry Measure

The Tala 1960's Icing Syringe Set is supplied in a wonderful retro tin and comprises an icing syringe, 5 icing nozzles and two icing nozzle brushes for easy cleaning. There is a good selection of icing nozzles and they are quickly and easily placed on the end of the syringe. I have no previous experience using an icing syringe but it is very easy to use, you have good control and is also easy to clean. The syringe bayonet has sharp edges and the syringe barrel is a little fiddly to load with icing.

The nozzles in the set are No.12 Shell, No.8 Star, No.5 Rope, No.36 Flower, No.2 Writer. The Icing Syringe Set can be purchased from

I am sure that you, like me, have Tala products in your home - I have just recently puchased some of their ceramic baking beans and my Tala Pastry Blender has been a useful piece of kitchen equipment that I bought years ago.

A Bit of Nostalgia! My Tala Icing Set passed to me from my Mum and is about 40 years old and still going strong!


As well as looking good this is a useful piece of kitchenware and you can measure both liquid and dry ingredients quickly. There are graded measures for sugar, rice, pulses, dried fruit and more. The Cook's Dry Measure can be purchased from

About the brand: Tala brand derived from the original company name of Taylor Law & Co. it was established in the UK in 1899 and developed a tremendous following for its wide range of cake decorating, bakeware and other kitchenware equipment. Over 110 years later Tala is still manufacturing products in England and is widely recognised as a well loved kitchenware brand.

Thank you and Mel.
