Love squeeze bottles!

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
I just bought some plastic squeeze bottles and used them to flood my cookies with RI. I'm in LOVE!!!!!! They are soooo awesome. For me it's so much quicker to flood the cookies. I didn't outline, just flooded. I have 5 bottles so I can have 5 different colors going at the same time. I still will use bags and tips for detail work.

Ohhhhhhhh, back to my new best friends. icon_biggrin.gif

i love mine also, but i used last night and when i changed the tips out, the ring used to tighten broke on the top. i salvaged for the moment, had to go out of town so I hope i can glue and fix, because this happen to two of them. so much neater than the bags.

I have two squeeze bottles but mine do not accept tips. They are just plastic bottles with a plastic tip. Do they sell some type that accepts your regular decorating tips? I just made a batch of RI. My first in some time. Been having lots of trouble with mine- high humidity-won't dry ect...
Trying Antonia74 recipe.

So glad to hear another great review on these. I just bought some last week from Cakes By Sam and can't wait to use them this next week on a cookie order! I waited to find the ones that I could change out the tip on them and I think i'm going to be very happy with the wait.

I have two that have a tip on them, and two that don't. I've used them one time on cookies, and hated them. They made my hands very tired and sore, and took me longer to us than a bag.

Wilton has just come out with squeeze bottles that you can put tips on. they sell them at Michaels. I think there are around 10 in the container. I purchased them recently but have not had a chance to use them yet!

you can use the squeeze bottle that are for candy melts and they have lids for "wrtiting" which work great for flooding. Bags are too messy!

Ooooohhhhh, I just saw the squeeze bottles that use the tips. I'm going to have to look for those!

There's a Michaels opening up about an hour away(much better than the next closest which is about 8 hours). I'll make up a trip up there and check.

Hi Lakaty,
Call the Michaels first, before you make the trip. They only stock a few at my Michaels and I don't want you to make that long drive and be disappointed. You can also order on line from them,(wilton) even though there is shipping charges with the price of gas and your time it might be worth considering.

I have a couple squeeze bottles that used inter-changable tips and I love them myself. I feel I have more control over the bottle than the bag. But I do agree, they stress your hands. I just finished some cookies using the squeeze bottles to flood and decorate and my cookies towards the end look sloppy because my hands were getting tired. But I was doing cookies for 8 hours yesterday so that could have been the issue too. I think they are great and I think I'm going to buy more.

Good point Cupcakes! I live in Canada so ordering from the Wilton website involves; currency exchange, higher shipping, and probably duty charges icon_cry.gif . It doesn't mean that I never order online I have to just think it thru thouroughly.

Plus I'm sure I'll find something that I 'need' at Michaels! icon_razz.gif (not to mention I can stop at Costco and the mall)

I just have a quick question...if you are using the bottles and not outlining, how do you keep the icing from dripping down the side? Thanks. Jodie

Oh, I hope my Michael's has the bottles that accept tips now! I have been wanting to try them. I just got Michael's gift cards for end of the year teacher gifts (the kids know I'm in there almost every week!) and I will have to pick up a set of these and whatever else I need for the Wilton class I am starting on Monday.

Is this the clear bucket with about 20 4-oz bottles in it? I bought this about two weeks ago, but I never thought to check if they worked with tips. I bought them primarily for chocolate work and for home-made snow cone syrup (they're perfect!)

I guess I'll have to check.
