I was just looking at decorated cookies on flickr - and I see a decorator using squeeze bottles with couplers and tips instead of bags. Those of you that use squeeze bottles - where would I order those from? This looks so much cleaner and I wouldn't have to worry about my royal icing drying and squeezing out the end of the bag all of the time. Would love to try this - thanks in advance for your info!!
Ok - I've done a little research online and I am finding the squeeze bottles - but I don't see how a coupler and tip could be attached - is there a special type of bottle for this?
The little cake shop by me sells these, I can take a look at these next time i'm in there and see what brand/info I can find about them.
They are generally sold in chocolate aisles of the cake stores -- or you can order them from here: http://www.countrykitchensa.com/shop/candy-making-supplies/squeeze-bottles/39/582/614/
I got mine at Sur la Table- in the store. Mine are these: http://www.surlatable.com/product/PRO-643049/Kuhn-Rikon-Round-Tip-Decorating-Squeeze-Bottle
I keep the cap handy and either lay the bottles on their side when not in use or tip it upside down into a glass to keep the icing near the tip.
I sawed off a 20 oz. plastic water bottle and use it to fill the bottles. The top part becomes a funnel and the bottom part holds the funnel when it's not in use and dirty.
Michaels has them over with the candy melts, not sure of the pice.
I found them at the dollar store, believe it or not. They work great for small candy molds, but these were very small - - only 2 oz capacity.
What timing! Just a few minutes ago I received info on new products from one of my supply sites:
Might this be what you are looking for?
