Just wanted to share. I think it's a pretty cool way to get the frosting in the bag and it isn't that messy either. Plus it makes switching frosting in and out so simple - if you're careful enough you won't have any transfer colour either.




Would this method work for 2 colors of icing in the same bag?(2 colors wrapped seperately placed in the bag)?



Yes, it works, but you have to be very careful not to fill the plugs too much and be sure the openings are both inside the coupler. You also have to watch how you hold and squeeze the bag to guard against squeezing one side more than the other.

Yes, it works great! I did it on these cupcakes, trying to see if I could make them look like soft-swirl ice cream. icon_wink.gif

I haven't read all the way through this topic but if it hasen't already been mentioned this is an excellent way to store those left overs. Pop them in a ziplock bag and not only can you readily see the color when you need it but it saves on space.

I a going to try this too. Thanks for the tips girls! As for the part on page 7 about measuring shortening, I dip my cup in hot water then fill with shortening - it drops right out.

I just used this method yesterday for the first time and it's great! So much easier to clean up.

another reason i like this method is because it reduces air pockets in your icing. i think due to my lack of experience, every time i filled a bag with icing, i'd get air pockets trapped inside from each glob i put in with my rubber spatula. then when piping i'd have blowouts. this doesn't happen with i just dump the icing in the plastic wrap, roll it tight like a burrito, and drop it in!

It is a great time saver! I get my bc colored and wraped into "bullets", even for using in my large icing bag and tip so the refills are no longer a mess. It really simplified my life! icon_biggrin.gif

I love this because I hate having to refill bags because I end up with frosting all over. I am an amateur. I will be trying this, this evening.
