How do you do a stripe in buttercream? From what I remember you put a stripe of the color paste (in this case, black) with a brush in the bag on the sid of the bag & then put the buttercream in there, but I would like a video on how they put the buttercream in the bag. Also can I use a regular clear icing bag or do I have to have parchment? Thanks

Paint the paste into the bag. I find parchment has a bit of "grip" to the inside better than the disposables. I run the paste lightly up on 4 sides. Drop in the icing, and squeeze. Have fun!

don't forget- 3 colors is great too. Think red, white and blue and run in alternating red and blue paste coloring into your large empty icing bag, and then gently plop in white icing in the middle. I find it helps if hubby holds the bag open with two hands, keeping the bag as open as possible, while I maneuver to plop the icing in the middle of the bag.

VERY cool effect, and an easy swirl on all those cuppies. Sprinkle with any holiday sprinkles and every kid will love you. Good luck!

If you don't have another person to hold open your bag, just sit the bag into a tall glass or if it's a big bag, in a vase or something. Roll the edges of the bag over the outside of the container and voila. Instant decorating bag filler.

You mean more useful besides help with being the Taste Tester or eating the left over crumb, or licking the BC off the tools? lol

I use empty Pringles containers for this, works great!
