Icing Bags - Page 2

post #16 of 26
I just bought a wilton featherlite (or something) for my large icer tip. Are these the same? It seems I still have to refill quite a bit.

It sounds like you bought a Wilton "featherweight" bag which should work fine with your icer tip. I use a 16 inch or more for mine which would help with frequent refilling.

My DH just brought me home a 24inch "grout bag" from Home Depot. It is lightweight canvas on the outside and vinyl on the inside, and get this, its machine wasable on delicate! Oh joy, have a stacked wedding cake to feed 300 in a few weeks, cant wait to try it out!

My Wilton instructor told me that she throws her featherweight bags in with her bleach loads. Does anyone else do this?

I don't know of anyone that washes them in bleach but I know some that put them in the dishwasher as long as they have some way to anchor them on the top rack.

Here is a picture of my "New" Icing Bag. It is a grout bag, DH bought it at Home Depot for 4ish dollars. It is a 24inch, I cut about 2.5 inch off to fit the icer tip. It is vinyl on inside, lightweight canvas on outside. My only dilema will be home will I hold this monster AND turn the turntable, it is a 2 handed bag it is so bag (cuts down on refills though) going to have DH pick me up another one since I have to icer tips. You can also buy at paint shop or brickyard and pay about $12 for them.

I too would have problems holding such a large bag but I have personally observed decorators that have the longer bags just toss it over their shoulder and pipe while holding it lower. When needed, they just work more icing down the bag. If I did this, I would probably tie the end with a rubber band as I am notoious for making a mess! Just ask my husband! icon_biggrin.gif
