Squeeze Bottles vs. Decorating Bags

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Which do you like to use to flood your cookies with .....Squeeze Bottles or Decorating bags, or both? I'm debating if I should try the squeeze bottles. Anyone out there like them better and if so why?

I havent used them on cookies, but I love the squeeze bottles for my flo icing, when doing other decorations. For me they are easier to control then the bag.. plus the bag keeps on flo-ing when you set it down, or place in a cup to hold. icon_lol.gif I always end up with three inches of flo-icing in my cup with a bag.

I do the squeeze bottles and use the tip of it to push the glace around if needed. I have a couple bottles that I've cut the tip a little wider for flooding but use the skinny bottles for the outlines. And when I'm switching from one bottle to the other constantly, I don't stand them up. I just lay them on their sides.

I love the bottles. For some reason my hand still shakes when holding a bag and I will not get a smooth line. To fill I pour my icing into a zip-loc bag and snip off the end to fill the bottle. Hope that helps. icon_smile.gif

Squeeze bottles! Much less mess, and as mentioned, no messy run-out or leaks. I've got a couple of bottles with built in couplers so I can change tips. I really like those.

Where did you get them? That sounds like something I could really use, but have never seen them.

Squeeze bottle work GREAT. And if you use the ones that CK Products sells you can use different size tips on them. I love these bottles and only use these to do my cookies. They come in 2 sizes, small and large. I just pour the icing in the bottles or if the icing is a little thick I put the icing in a plastic decorater bag and cut a hole in the bottom and squeeze the frosting in the bottles then just rise out the bag and reuse it.

I use the CK bottles too - there are some 3-oz bottles (you have to get from CK South) that are absolutely the bomb! You don't waste so much as the bottle empties.

I buy them in a shop I get most of my decorating supplies. Not sure if the hobby stores carry them or not and I don't think there is a brand name on them. I'll ask next time I'm at the store.
