What do you use when you need just a little BC for a mini cake? Do you use disposeable pastry bags? Do you make your own? How about the tips? Do you keep a bag of white BC in a pastry bag in the freeze with a tip for when you need it? I'm just wondering how I can not waste so many pastry bags when I just need a little. Do I buy a bunch of couplers and put those on the ends so I can use my tips as I need them? Did any of this question make sense? icon_confused.gif

Parchment bags are actually nice for when you need to use small amounts, especially since you can make half size bags as well.

I know they're hard to clean but I usually use Wilton Featherweight bags. I have 5 or 6 8" ones. When I do use disposable bags I try to use them at least twice. I also save even little bits of leftover frosting in the freezer so I always have a few colors on hand for things like dots and flower centers. Caking is a hobby for me so I try to economize wherever I can.

Parchment paper is great for making your own bags because you can make them as big or as small as you need.

For little things, I use sandwich bags and I cut the corner off and shove my tip down in it.
