Hello All!!

 

I am new here, so imagine me waving *waves". Ive always come here for answers to my questions, but never thought about joining! Hopefully one day, I can have some answers, but for now all I have are questions (LOL). Moving on, anybody have an opinion on the Featherweight bags or disposable ones? Ads&Disads maybe? Im sure theres a thread either identical or similar to this, but I didnt look. Thanks in advance!! Excited to be here around more cake enthusiasts, now I can stop bothering my dad and my boyfriend with my cake talk lol.

A*Waves back* Welcome. I have both but I find myself reaching for the disposables more. I guess I'm just used to them. In school we used the disposables too.

I don't know what the featherweight bags are but I have swapped from using washable piping bags to disposable ones in the last year. Give me a disposable any day.  I hate the cleaning up and I especially hated washing the piping bag.  I bought a whole pile cheap on ebay from China.

APlus since there's like 5 billion in a bag, it doesn't hurt as much when I overestimate how much of the tip I need to cut for the coupler and the bloomin' thing falls right through cos I cut too much off the tip of the bag. I just reach for another. With the non-disposables... that kinda hurts :lol:

AI'm not replacing my washable bags as they break, etc. I've switched to disposable.

LOL!  I have done this more times than I care to admit. 

 

I love the 16" disposables!

Although I prefer disposables because I hate cleaning them I still go for the featherweight for bigger jobs.  My hands are so hot. If I'm icing a ton of cupcakes or icing lots of cake with the same frosting, I use the featherweight. If I use the disposables I have to load up 2-3 bags  and switch back and forth because my hands melt the frosting. This doesn't happen as fast with the featherweight.

AYes that's my problem! I was icing some red velvets like a week ago and my hands were so hot the frosting was just melting! Maybe ill start trying to use both! I've only ever used disposable nothing else.

I switched from disposable to featherweight because I thought I would save money. I only used the featherweight twice, I despised cleaning them. Disposable all the way!
