Piping bag (post #69706)


Hi all,

  looking to purchase a new piping bag.  I have been told to look for one with a coupling for the tips.  I haven't found one that is of a good size, only the small cake decorating sets.   I mainly use it for making pavlovas, but would like to get into using it for icing cakes too.

  Does anyone have a recommendation? or a suggestions?

Buy disposable plastic ones.  (post #69706, reply #1 of 6)

Buy disposable plastic ones.  A whole lot less of trouble.

Really? (post #69706, reply #2 of 6)

Really? how so?  I would really rather get a cloth one...they are not that hard to clean.

How many cloth ones do you (post #69706, reply #4 of 6)

How many cloth ones do you keep?  I had 8 disposable ones (which I clean and re-use) filled with different colors for one cake.  LOL.     You can also make them out of parchment paper. 

But, but, it's SUPPOSED to taste like that!

Disposable for me too. I never got the trick of the parchment things. Call me fumble fingers. :)

I don't have any (post #69706, reply #6 of 6)

I don't have any cloth ones.  I usually use a ziploc bag or I was given a tiny little one that was purchased as a cake decorating kit.

I didn't realize that I could re-use the disposable.  I thought it was a no no like re-using disposable water bottles.

I found cloth ones at our restaurant supply store but they don't have the coupling attachment and since that is what I had read that you should have I didn't buy any.

I don't do a lot of cake decorating, although I would love to get into that a bit more.  I typically use them to make pavlova.
