Love squeeze bottles! - Page 2

Yep, that's the set - I got it this morning at Michael's. It doesn't say on the container anywhere that the regular couplers and tips work on the bottles. I got it home & tried my coupler and it worked - yeah!!! I can't wait to try them out tomorrow.

Does anyone have a hint on how to fill the bottle? I can't get my icing to flow into the bottle- it keeps clogging up at the neck. I'm afraid to make it too thin. Does someone else use a funnel maybe?

Thanks.

What about putting the icing in a plastic bag, then cut the corner off and squeeze it in the top of the bottle? I haven't tried mine yet, but that's the first thing I thought of. Or a cone of parchment might work...

Actually I tried the squeeze bottle and didn't like it because you loose too much icing inside and it is definately harder to squeeze than a bag. icon_sad.gif

I use funnels when pouring my icing in the bottles, works great for the thinner flow. When the icing is thick, it takes awhile for it to drain and I have to push it down with a spatula.

I do the same as Sweeteecakes. Funnel and a spatula.

I've been wanting to buy this set, but haven't got a chance.
Do you mean that the neck of the bottle is so small that you can use a coupler ring and a tip??? icon_eek.gif

I love squeeze bottles too! I have some for RI and some for chocolate. They make life so much easier.

Yes, the bottle has a small neck that the regular coupler screws onto.

i love them too for cookie decorating. i read somewhere here about them and ran to the cake shop to get them. thankfully they had them. I only have 4 of them. I also use a funnel with thinner consistancy to get it in the bottle. I almost never do an outline on the cookies, the trick is for the icing to be a bit thick so it doesn't drip. Or to make sure you don't flood all the way near the edge. Give it some space and spread easy with the tip.
