New Use for Wilton's Candy Plastic Bottles

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Well, let me start by saying that I have 4 dozen mini's and 3 dozen regulars due on V-day, cupcakes that is... so I decided to bake today and ice/decorate tomorrow. I put 24 of the little CC holders in my CC pan and thought, how ever am I going to get the batter in these things without overflowing them? Tried a pitcher, too much too fast for the little guys, tried to spoon, too messy... and then I got a bright idea... I had bought the large wilton plastic bottle for candy making last week and hadn't used it... I figured hmmmmmm.. they put condiments in them, so why not? Not to mention the control over my batter I would have.. so needless to say I used a rubber funnel and poured the batter into the batter and then took scissors and snipped off the top of the nose of it to make it thick enough for batter, and voila... like a charm, I have 2 dozen in the oven baking now in no time... I just thought I would share my genius moment with CC icon_smile.gif

THANK YOU!!! I have about 50 cupcakes due on Wed. for my girls school parties. I will be baking and icing them tomorrow. I'm not doing any real decorating on them this year. I know Bad Mommy. icon_lol.gif The kids only want the sugar out of them anyway. I'm taking the easy way out this year.

Great idea Lori! I use an icecream scoop for mine with great luck, but I'll have to try your method!

That is a great idea too, but I have one of those pampered chef scoops and that booger overflows my little mini's!

i thought of the bottle too, but didnt have one so i ended up using a large gallon ziplock bag and snipped the corner for filling both sizes. cheap and disposable (no extra dishes to wash).

you've actually inspired me to use those for a project i am working on now.. i have made a few dozen cake balls in the shape of kisses.. but its very hard to dip them like you would a regular cake ball.. i think i will use the bottle to pour over the top of them.. woo hoo..

This has turned into a GREAT thread...thanks Lori! The scoop I have is made for minis (from Williams Sonoma) so they dispense the perfect amount, however, yours would be a faster alternative.....don't have to "scoop" each time! Also, the idea of using them to cover cake balls w/ chocolate is genious!

Nice idea, I always use the cookie small scoop, to fill the mini ones, but i like your idea better,
also many use a big decorating bag to pour the batter on, you can use is with a coupler only.


Happy Valentines Baking everyone!!!!!!!!
