Thanks for your pics. It makes clear what I had tried to describe in another thread. This technique is also great for striping. I put the plastic wrap across the corner of the table and do a stripe of one color to the end of the corner and then a stripe of another color next to it also extending to the corner. You can easily do three colors.

I learned this method 8 years ago! I love it! Takes up less space in the fridge too when storing your colors!

Oh thank you for this post. I use the reuseable bags and they are not fun to clean. And I always have bowls of frosting filling the fridge this will make it so much more stream lined. I think I loke the ziploc bag idea the best no wrapping etc....
THe adding three different color ideas is also a great tip! I love the look of those floral cupcakes. What tip did you use in those?

OMG how cool is that tip, I too absolutely detest cleaning bags, but the disposable ones are too pricey to change for every color. (I have used as many as 15 color variations on one cake). My life just got sooooo much easier! THANKS!!! thumbs_up.gif

My friend has one of those sealing units that you use to freeze food items. She uses the bulk bags to make her own disposable bags. She makes a batch of frosting and then seals it in a bag in a triangular shape then she snips off the end and uses it to in the Plug method. I have on of those units but I am afraid I will pop the "packet of frosting" just from putting pressure on it to decorate. She doesnt seem to have a problem but I dont want to ruin a cake with an explotion of color either.
Has anyone else done this plug method? Any input if you have?

I use the icer tip to ice the cakes. But since I don't do business of cake selling, I don't buy 18" disposable bags. I hate cleaning up the featherweight bag every time I use it and icing plug wouldn't work for such large amount of icing unless you are ready to make several of them and I don't really want to spend that much time. So, what I tried this weekend was to fill good amount of icing into a gallon ziploc bag and push it to the end and twist the sealed bag into a cone. I snipped the corner and dumped this inside the featherweight bag. Iced and luckily I had nothing left in the ziploc bag. Just tossed it and rinsed the almost clean bag. Just had to clean the tip that's all. I know we can wash them in the dish washer, but even then I like to get the grease out and then put in the dish washer. This way, I didn't have to spend 10 minutes scrubbing the bag.
I don't know if this is helpful to anyone, but just thought to share it.



Thanks for sharing this! It will make it a lot easier for me. I also use the icer tip with the large featherweight bag and spend way too long cleaning the grease off when I'm done. Will do this next time icon_biggrin.gif

Hi All,
I'm so new to this site and just loving it. Thanks to you all for all of the beautiful cakes and tips. This is one I've used for a long time. If it's not clear let me know and I'll take some pictures later and re-explain. I hate having to have a million tubes of frosting so here is how I avoid some of it. Imagine an empty pastry bag with a tip. Now imagine another bag filled with say pink frosting and a tip for making roses. Now imagine that you only need a little bit of pink frosting to write Happy Birthday. Take your empty bag and put a writer tip into it. Next take your pink bag of frosting with the rose tip and slide the whole thing into the empty bag. It will amaze you at how easy it is to use the same color frosting with several different tips and only have one bag with the pink frosting mess. The only additional mess is the new tips that are used and it is so easy to change them out. If this tip has been passed around forever and I'm just repeating it please forgive. As I said I am new to the site. Blessings to all.
