Tip for Tuesday - Icing Bag Bullet

Did you know that you don't always have to have a coupler to use an Icing Bag Bullet?

Today's Tip for Tuesday: As long as the tip is wide enough to thread the plastic wrap through, you don't have to use a coupler, and you can still use a bullet. This makes it a lot easier to, say, swirl a bunch of cupcakes with various colors or icings.

If you haven't heard of the bullet before... prepare yourself. You are now learning how to make cleaning up after decorating cakes, cupcakes, cookies, whatever, a zillion times easier.

It's simple:

You scoop about 1/2- 1 cup icing onto a piece of plastic wrap. Fold the bottom up, the top down, then grab it in both hands around the ends, and swing it gently to create a column of icing in the middle.

You feed the end of the plastic wrap through a coupler (or a large tip), cut it off, and voila! icing bag filling made simple.
I recommend that you not use the bullet with any tip smaller than a #12 round tip or #21 star tip. I haven't had much luck using it with the bismarck filling tip either.

The best part... the clean up. Simply pull the bullet back out of the bag. All you should have is a little icing down on the coupler. Makes those disposable decorating bags reusable for a much longer time.

  1. Choose from a featherweight, a disposable or a parchment icing bag. Featherweight bags are made from washable polyester, disposable bags are made of clear plastic and parchment bags are made from parchment paper triangles.
