Poll: What kind of icing bags do we use? - Page 5

post #61 of 70
featherweight for BC and royal (occasionally parchment when I just need a little of one color) Parchment for chocolate

99% times parchment. I use featherweight when I have to do lot of decorating in a single color. I find it easier to refill featherweight multiple times than parchment.

I prefer featherweights but I also use disposables (Wilton).

I don't have much of a problem with cleaning the bags. I use the saran wrap method and then throw the bags in a sink filled with soapy water. I will even run the bags through the dishwasher, which I prop open by attaching the bottom edges to the spokes by using binder clips.

For some reason I don't like the feel of the disposables. Maybe my hand slips or something. I'm not really sure what it is.

What is the saran wrap method? Curious to know, please share.

The saran wrap method is where you roll up the BC in saran wrap and then stick the saran wrap roll into the decorating bag. You pull the wrap through the coupler and trim off the end before applying the tip. You still get some BC at the end of the bag where the coupler is located but for the most part your bag stays clean. Unless, of course, you use too much BC for the amount of saran wrap which causes a blow out inside of the bag. I also advise to use garbage bag wires to tie of the top end of the saran wrap.

I never really got how to make a good parchment paper bag, does anybody have a tip on how to? I use disposable for most of the work and a 16" featherweight for my icer tip.

I have used parchment triangles for quick stuff like piping on petit fours yet I have disposable Wilton bags for my dark colors and I have reusable bags when I have a lot of piping for one color so I go for variety. I have even used sandwich bags/snack bags plastic of course cut the corner and use that if I'm in a pinch. Hope that helps.

I have featherweights, but I usually only use my disposable...I usually use a coupon to buy the big pack and always have them on hand...

Featherweight (wilton) for icing tip...if I use it
Disposable for most decorating
Parchment for some royal icing and piping.
