Cool, I learned the same thing on You Tube and I love it. It makes clean-up a breeze and parchment bags don't burst open on me.

Then when i've used all the icing up I just pull out the bag by the other end and voila.....toss it away and insert another bag. I've even made small inserts of different colors and dropped them side by side in the same pastry bag to achieve a two toned effect. I make sure to make the inserts the size of my hand, no bigger, so its not so much to have to squeeze. Since I've made lots of inserts I can just drop another one in and keep going. I've even had my family help to make the inserts, especially the white buttercream ones, while I'm busy baking/crumbcoating my cakes. Its a time saver for me.





It looks like you can put more than one in the bag, this is great!!!!

wow! i am so excited to try this. i'm all for less clean-up. now has anyone ever tried this technique with press n seal? would it be too sticky to come through? blessings to all.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I waste at least an hour cleaning out my bags throughout the decorating process.

Thanks for the tips, As far as the press & seal funtomake mentioned .. I would think it might totally seal off the icing and not allow it to come through. More like a sealed bag, rather than open on the end. I can't wait to try this.

Two new methods, awesome! I hate all the clean up and making more than one color in bag with less hassle. I love this site.
Thanks everyone
