The best reusable icing bag
by Richard Leonard
Hi, I recently purchased a reusable icing bag which works well but after icing about 3 cupcakes the outside of the bag becomes very slippery with oil. Have you any suggestion where I can purchase a bag that does not become slippery and has a changeable nozzle.
Thanks very much
Thanks very much for your question about reusable icing bags.
I do find when frosting that you need to make sure your hands are clean and you don't get any frosting/icing on the outside of the bag as that will make it messy
Because they do become "yuk" after using a few times, I now tend to just buy disposable bags from the supermarket. These all come with about 6 plastic nozzles and a coupler to hold them in place. I have a drawer full of nozzles as I throw out the plastic icing bag but the nozzles wash well and I tend to keep these.
Having said all that I do have an icing bag that I have had for several years that has been used over and over and over again. I wash it out and dry on the clothes line and don't put it away till fully aired and dried. It is made by BakerzBest in Japan. I have just looked up their web address bakerzbest.com but the website doesn't seem to be still available.
I hope this helps.
