Michael's Bucket of Bottles Bargain - Page 2

post #16 of 37
Thanks MandyBs. I was getting discouraged. Now I know that there are rings out there that will fit so that I can change tips.

i got so excited, i went to michael's and bought their last 2 buckets. i just tried to put the coupler on, and it just keeps spinning. well, i'll still use the lid that came with it. that's actually what i use now anyways.

Kneadacookie- You will have to find some non-Wilton couplers for the bottles. Try a cake supply store or an online site - they are not very expensive. Have fun with your bottles!

i probably have 4 different kinds of couplers. none fit. that's alright though

Thanks for the tip, MandyBs! I went to my local Michael's after work yesterday and bought the last two buckets they had for $3.89 each. Great bargain seeing as they were $12.99 at one point.

If your coupler rings are too large for the bottles, just put a few layers of Saran Wrap or teflon plumber's tape or even Scotch tape around the threads on the bottle. That should give you some added thickness so that the threads on the coupler ring can catch and lock on.

O.K. I got up and was at Michaels when they opened. They had 2 buckets on the shelf. So I took one I got it for $2.08 and that included the tax. The price under the bucket was $12.99. So I called my friend to see if she wanted the last one, so I bought that one for her. Thanks for the posting that they were on sale.

Ok, I am lost......I bought these a couple months ago ( full price icon_sad.gif ) and I don't know exactly what to use them for? Do I put royal in them and just use the little round opening for accents on cookies? Do you use them for chocolate?

I can't find my reciept but was planning on taking them back next week however now I won't bother since I would only get a couple of dollars for them - so maybe I should figure out a way to use them! thx

I love them for painting details in candy molds, and saw them a few months ago, but when I went back to get them they were all gone. The clearance sale would explain their disappearance. lol

They are great for sugar cookie decorating, chocolates and cakes. If you have a coupler that fits, you can use any of your tips, then put the original lid back on with the red tip to save the leftover icing. I was thinking about doing a cookie decorating class for the little girls at church and filling these with all different colors for them to use.
Cakepro- Thanks for the teflon tape idea! I bet the blue painter's tape would also work!

For fun I thought I would check out Michael's here in Canada. Well the bucket is not unsale and not only that they cost $ 21 something icon_eek.gif

I went to the Michael's here (McKinney, TX) and they had the Wilton bucket of bottles for $12.99. I asked and employee and she gave me the whole "whatever it says is how much it is" speech. I later found another guy (turned out to be a manager) and he scanned it for me and it came up $3.89 for the 18 bottles. He was surprised that they had missed it.

I bought one bucket and as of an hour ago, there is one bucket still there that they had still not marked it down. So unless someone knows about it, it'll probably sit there until a CC'r goes and gets it!

I have never seen them before, but saw this post this morning so I ran to Michael's at lunch and got some. If you guys use them then they must be good to have! icon_smile.gif They were only $3.89... WHAT A STEAL!! There were about 5 left.

Question : can you put buttercream in those to decorate or would that be too thick?? I'm trying to find a better way of writing on cakes so I was thinking maybe those since I can kinda hold it like I would a pen. What do you think??

I just got home from the Michael's in Santa Clarita, CA, and they still have some left. (I bought two buckets there today for $3.89 each, and there was at least one or two more.) The shelf tag still said $12.99, with no indication that it was a clearance item.

Some of my coupler rings fit, I think the Ateco ones.
