Poll: What kind of icing bags do we use? - Page 3

post #31 of 70
I use parchment. I don't like the feel of the disposable ones and hate to wash the featherweights.

I use featherweights because they are easier for me to work with & newlywedws idea of the BCI wrapped in plastic wrap so the bags are easy to clean! Great tip newlywedws!! Thanks!!

Ok so I looked up the Keeseal site do you use the ultra or the regular and what is the difference?
post #34 of 70
I use the keeseal bags. I just got 2 boxes of the regular. I love them. They did send me samples of the ultra with my order and are they ever nice. I got the 12" and the 18". I think it only cost me $48 with shipping and handling. It was well worth it. That comes to something like .24 cents a bag.

WOW!!

I'm really glad to see the Kee Seal bags on line!!

I've been paying $4.99 + tax here, for 10 of them! thumbsdown.gif (Although I reckon I'd be payin' more--I love them!!)

Kee Seals are what I use--unless I run out, then I use my trusty old Wiltons or Featherweights. Which I loathe washing!

I like the diposables for decorating. But thanks to someone on this site I learned about useing plugs. I used these at DD cake decorating B-Day party they helped alot. And I saw something here about useing zippy bags. I think that would be easier than saran wrap. Maybe not as cheap though. I have reused the disposables useing this method. Therefore saving money and less mess thumbs_up.gif

I used to use Wilton Featherweights but they always split on me so now I stick with Ateco. They're so sturdy and more comfortable. I rarely use disposables (I don't know why). I don't mind cleaning the bags, it's the tips that I hate cleaning! They always slip down the drain when I'm washing them by hand and my dishwasher doesn't get them clean in that little mesh bag...oh well, I guess there's no way around that!

I use Ateco bags when at home. When I travel to do a demo or to decorate at a location, I use Kee-Seal disposables. Both are more expensive, but worth every cent.

My favorite Ateco bag is the Flex Bag, which is especially designed for use with the very large icing tip.

They sell them at www.pastrysampler.com.

Disposable most of the time.

When I first started decorating on my own (about 12 years ago) I used only Featherweights. I never could get used to disposables, my hand just slips right off of them. Then I took Wilton Courses I and II last year and the instructor got me hooked on parchment triangles, now that's what I use for everything.
