That will happen if your tip opening is too closed or pinched. Wilton sells a "tip saver"
Its basically a pointy piece of plactic you wedge into your tip to open it up.
You can pretty much use any clean plastic househould object, that its that kind of shape to get the job done.
Occassionly I will use a spoon or butterknife to quickly wedge the tip shape open, but beware!... this can damage and actually ruin your tip.
