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!!!!
