What do you use when you need just a little BC for a mini cake? Do you use disposeable pastry bags? Do you make your own? How about the tips? Do you keep a bag of white BC in a pastry bag in the freeze with a tip for when you need it? I'm just wondering how I can not waste so many pastry bags when I just need a little. Do I buy a bunch of couplers and put those on the ends so I can use my tips as I need them? Did any of this question make sense?
Parchment bags are actually nice for when you need to use small amounts, especially since you can make half size bags as well.
I know they're hard to clean but I usually use Wilton Featherweight bags. I have 5 or 6 8" ones. When I do use disposable bags I try to use them at least twice. I also save even little bits of leftover frosting in the freezer so I always have a few colors on hand for things like dots and flower centers. Caking is a hobby for me so I try to economize wherever I can.
Parchment paper is great for making your own bags because you can make them as big or as small as you need.
For little things, I use sandwich bags and I cut the corner off and shove my tip down in it.
