I don't have any tips, but I, too, have problems with the little buggers. I usually end up dumping half the contents trying to get it open! Maybe it's a conspiracy to force you to buy more, lol. icon_biggrin.gif

Why do you think it is so difficult?? I also got hurt by trying to open one little canister.I used a knife I got impatient! icon_sad.gif

Now I ask the lady that sells it to me to open it! icon_lol.gif I do not shop on line I do not know how to nor like it.

Ciao!

I know! It's awful! I use a small screwdriver...like for eyeglasses...to get under and pry it open. Then after it's open I will only close one end of cap. It's easier to open the next time.

Okay after 20 mins of trying and fingers going numb, I pulled out the needle nose pliers. Cracked a side of the lid but got it open! I think from now on im going to go buy small Tupperware containers to put them in. I cant waste time on trying to open containers when im trying to get multiple cakes done :-/
