I was watching Bobby Valastro on the Wendy Williams Show the other day.
Also watching some cake decorators in local grocery store.
Does any one know the size of the LARGE piping bags that they use? I have some 16" but would like to try something bigger.
Where would I get them I havent seen anything bigger than 16" in Michael's or local supply store.

Thanx Alot

You need to get those from a resturant/bakery supply store (usually wholesale). They can be anywhere from 22"-27".
I never did get the hang of using them. I must rather re-fill my 16 or 18"er.

I can't handle anything larger than a 16 and sometimes THAT is to much ....those suckers get heavy after awhile..... I'd rather re-fill........

I was just thinking that too...I think I have fairly large hands for a woman but the 16 is big enough for me! I can't imagine trying to hold onto a bigger one.

Hobby Lobby carries the 18" bags, but most people would only use a bag that big if using whipped cream in them.

I mostly use 12s and 14s. I find them easier to control.

Buddy's bags are huge!! The biggest that I'll use is a 16. But I (like Leahs) prefer a 12 or a 14.

And if I'm using RI, I just use an 8 or 10.
