Squeeze Bottles vs. Decorating Bags - Page 2

post #16 of 24
To fill my bottles, I use a bowl with a spout on it to mix up my glace. I tip the bowl, getting all the icing headed in the right direction, hold the bowl up high and the icing goes right into the bottle and when it's almost full, I get the spatula ready to stop the flow. I think this might take some practice, but I've mastered it and it's the only way for me!

Thanks, everyone! I will give the squeeze bottles a try!

I've just ordered 6 of each of the two sizes of bottles from coppergifts.com. For september only, it's $6 shipping on all orders that can be boxed together in one pkg.
I am SO excited to start using these bottles. I've never had great luck with smooth lines using pastry bags on cookies. And the fact that you can use any standard-size tips you like with them, lends a great deal of versatility imho.

I love the squeeze bottles. They are quicker, easier, and less of a mess for decorating.

I appy the RI backing color with a spatula and use the bags for the detail work. Much fewer things to fill and clean, it's faster and less icing on each cookie. They are so sweet already - less icing is okay.

I like the convenience of the squeeze bottle for flooding with royal, but I've found that I get more air bubbles on my iced cookies that way. I'm probably shaking the bottle or something! So I use a bag now with a #3 tip.

I prefer a bottle for flood icing I can work with one hand and when I set the bottle down there isn't icing flowing out like with a piping bag.

I also like how it stands right up when I pour the icing in unlike the bag that you need to prop up to get the runny icing into it.

I want to thank OP and the folks who answered for this information. I just took a Wilton candy class and these bottles with tips will be fabulous! I've ordered a bunch for RI and candy work. Thanks again everyone!
