never used it, looks like piping would do the same thing, only easier and no expense of an extra tool. If i'm wrong i'd love to know.... i am, after all, the queen of gadgets (hence the 19 drawer tool cart for my stuff )
i use the edible markers from americolor (i think) and i love them. they're called gourmet markers, pack of like 10 or 12 different colors, and they are really invaluable for fine details on fondant...especially black! i hate making up royal icing or buttercream with ton of my black die, getting all over everything, just for a few small minor details. instead, i whip out my marker, and have at it!
i've never heard of this product you've showed, so i can't weigh in with my opinon of it, but it does seem to make sense for chocolate drizzles or any writing with chocolate and such.
Do you have to press that plunger to get the icing out? That doesn't look comfortable to me. An icing bag seems easier.
Piping definitely is not at the top of my skill set, so I am looking for anything that will give me a little more control and (hopefully) make my piping look better.
i use the edible markers from americolor as well, that gadget doesn't give me the impression that it would be easy to handle, and it looks less easy than a piping bag.
in my photos there are two different examples where i have used the markers, both used on fondant to make signs.
I don't cover with fondant, so the markers wouldn't really work for me. I'm actually thinking about using it with chocolate to decorate my petit fours or Oreo's. I may try little parchment bags first.
oh i see...it does look like it would be good for drizzling but i agree with you, before spending the money i would try parchment bags, which would probably do the same thing
I had a new cajun injector left over from Thanksgiving & used it to drizzle melted chocolate (without the needle tip) over cookies & candy @ Christmas. Worked like a charm
