Squeeze bottles that can use cake tips...? - Page 2

post #16 of 30
The easiest way to fill the squeeze bottles is to put your icing in a ziploc sandwich bag or something similar, clip the corner off and squeeze it into the bottle.

I use a small diameter dish to mix my colored icing in, and when it's the right consistency, I can pour it into the bottle carefully. The smaller the diameter of the bowl, the easier this is to do. If the icing is too thick, it comes in big globs and will make a huge mess, though. I hold the bowl up about 4 inches above the bottle and use a spoon to ease a bit of the icing over the edge. As it starts to fall, it stretches out into a thin ribbon of icing, and as it goes into the bottle I tip the bowl a bit so it continues to flow, helping with the spoon as necessary.

My father in law watched me do this once and said I must be the only person on the planet that could make that work without spilling icon_eek.gif , but I truly believe anybody can do it with a little practice! icon_smile.gif

hth!

The one-foot-above-your-head trick was working for me until this last time, I had one bowl that went *all* over, so I will be using the bags from now on. icon_razz.gif

I forgot to mention that it's best to do this over a plate, or something you can put in the sink, rather than having it all over your counter in case of a malfunction! icon_biggrin.gif

The baggie trick works well, though, just clip off a small piece from the corner so you get a thin stream of icing through it to put in the bottle.

I found the bottles in a store near my job. They are a bit pricier than the ones online.

I live in Central Jersey, Middlesex County, South Brunswick. I bought them in a store in NY. called ny cake (nycake.com), they are 3.99 for 2 (2 oz) bottles. I just figured i don't order a lot from the internet, so i'll just pick them up there. I don't know if they have them, but there is a store in Somerville, NJ called Candyland crafts (candylandcrafts.com) they also carry tons of decorating stuff.

FUNNEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL! I had the worst time, and don't want to waste a disposable bag (all I use anymore). I found small funnels for about 55 cents in the auto department at Wal Mart (the aisle with oil). They are PERFECT!

TJsCakes, thank you for the heads up about Ebay--when you posted, the woman who sold you yours had none left but after checking out Sugarcraft and Kitchengifts for the bottles, I decided one last time to check Ebay and she had 4 of them listed not only for a good price (the $1.50) but shipping was cheaper. Thank you! thumbs_up.gif Can't wait to try them.......eh, that is, when I am "off strike"...... icon_rolleyes.gif
