I have read they are not fun to fill but I would think a funnel would make that easier.
would love to know your thoughts
thanks in advance!!
This was my exact addiction order too
I only use bottles, I have both sizes, but find I use the 2 oz more. I got the big set in a tub from Michales with a coupon, I think there were like 18 in there and I believe they are smaller than 8 oz and I use those a lot too. Then I have a few of these for small detail work.
They are a bit of a pain to clean, but they are so much easier for me to work with for out lining and flooding. The openings are small and I though I would have to use a funnel, but I don't have a problem filling them I just pour slow and get it going and if you pour slow enough it all goes in without a mess. Also I use glace and I think that might make a difference with ease of filling bottles, it pours smoother and doesn't start to get thick as fast as RI if that makes sense.
Welcome to cookie obsession, I LOVE cookies now, so much so I started to feel like I was cheating on my cakes and cuppies
But there's room for everyone in my kitchen,lol. Just have to throw in here, because you sound like a kindred spirit, check out the Doboard, it changed my cookie making life, seriously has to be the best thing baking wise I ever bought. End of novel, sorry! Andrea
