Whenever I put my RI in a parchment bag with a tip, the icing ooozes out from the edges around the tip, runs down the tip and messes everything up. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to get a snug fit with the tip in a parchment bag. Any hints/suggestions?

That's happend to me before, and what happens is that, if you just throw the tip in w/out the coupler and your parchment bag isn't made so that it wraps around good and you kinda have a gap in the opening, this happens. So what I do is use the wilton technique where you make the W on top of parchment and make 3 tears after I've folded in down before filling and and now I don't even use coupler or tip anymore I just cut the tip off of the bag before using depending on what I'm doing.

Definitely use a coupler and when you cut your hole for the tip, don't cut it too big. I like cutting the hole just big enough so that about 1/2 to 2/3 of the tip fits through the hole. That way when you put your coupler on, it goes on OVER the piping bag and keeps that bag nice and tight around your tip so nothing oozes out.

Sorry to be dense...but I'm talking about parchment bags (disposable) not decorating/pastry bags (I always use couplers with them, unless I'm using a jumbo tip). Are you all saying I should use a coupler in a parchment bag?

I had this problem the first time I used RI.Mine was too thin,so I added more p. sugar and rewhipped it for a few min. I used the disposable deco. bags.After I got the icing stiff enough they worked fine,oh and I did use the coupler with my tip. icon_smile.gif

I never use a coupler with a tip and parchment bag. Could be that your royal is too thin but more likely that when you cut the parchment bag, you may be cutting it too much. For me I cut the bag so 1/2 to 3/4 of the tip sticks out.

I'm pretty much a newbie at it, but I think it's at the right flow consistency. And I tried cutting the opening smaller, so that only the very tippy part sticks out. It goooshes everywhere. Waaaaaah.
