post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Firstly let me say that I am always loosing the piping tips that i need to use and have to search everywhere for them sometimes i find them but today sadly i just can't find the two I REALLY need, there're just gone icon_cry.gif When am i gonna learn to straight away put them back in their box when i am finished cleaning them???

Anyway vent over, i am going to get myself a couple of the same tips to help with my cookies and all incase i loose them again icon_rolleyes.gif

Am going to get some more #2 tips......Question: What tip do you use most to do thin black outlines or details on your cookies? #1 or #0? trying to decide whether to buy more #1 or try a #0

Alrighty, that's all for me icon_smile.gif

I prefer the thinness of a 00 or 0, but I most often use a 1 because the 0's get clogged too easily...

I know the stocking trick ("smush" icing in a clean washed, unused stocking to get all the lumps out), but I usually forget to do that and just get frustrated!

Yeh i know about the stocking thing, like u said if i forget to do it my #1 get's clogged, it is very frustrating!

If u do the stocking thing does the 0 still pipe nicely then?

I like my #1 but for somethings i might need that extra thiness

I can't find that thread with the stocking instructions. Can someone please post the link? I'd like to try this because piping with the #1 is always so frustrating and the #2 is way too thick.

If you can sometimes i find it less messy to put the RI into the stocking and then put it in your piping bag and then press the RI out pushing on the top of the icing bag that way your hands don't get messy.

Thank you so much!
I just don't get where the plastic wrap goes. And does this get put into a decorating bag with the tip set up?

Wrap the plastic wrap around the top of the lump of icing in the stocking so when your pushing it down it doesn't get on your hands, does that make sense? You can just use gloves if you want.

You can either put it straight into a piping bag or just into another bowl

Elise, if it is a metal one, might it be in the dishwasher - or oven.
After i wash my metal things i always put them in the oven for 15 minutes to dry correctly - perhaps that it where it is hiding - hope so.
When am i gonna learn to straight away put them back in their box when i am finished cleaning them???

I NOW keep a tray in my kitchen, so as when i am finished with everything - it all gets carted down to the *cake room* - learnt that after i lost a small cookie cutter, it had fallen down behind my Mixer - icon_redface.gif

yeh a metal and a plastic one lol

I usually clean them by hand then leave them on top of the counter to go clean other stuff or someone else cleans them first and puts them on the drying tray or wherever they put them away lol

I looked in all my boxes, on the counter, in the draws, on the drying tray, anywhere and i found the plastic one but the other one is just gone icon_confused.gif

I can't even count the number of times i am always loosing them lol

I once found one wedged into a small drainage hole in the dishwashing rack.
Another time, it was in the sugar!
Several times i've found them in a pocket of something i must've been wearing that day, and once i had to turn off the dryer when i heard something clanking around in there.......yup, my tip!

I have multiple tips... saves me all the time! I think I have 4 or 5 #1s, 3 #2s, 3 #3s, and 5 #4s. Oh, and a 00 and a 0.
