Hi Cakers!

How in the heck do I open these small bottles of dust. I am hoping others have these same small bottles of dusts. They are from J e s t e r's. Bought them at f o n d a n t s o u r c e .com I cannot for the life of me get these small tubs to open?!?!?!?!?! They will not screw off or pop off without breaking my fingers!

Aren't those little jars just supremely irritating?!? I use an old-fashioned bottle opener - the kind you would use on a beer bottle or glass soda bottle. It looks kinda like a squashed circle on the end of a handle with a couple of tabs on either side of the handle. If you shop around, there is a smaller sized opener that perfectly fits those dratted little jars. A couple of suppliers used to sell them in the smaller size for the petal dust jars, but I didn't see them when I just did a quick search. Think I found my small one at a dollar-type store, but I can use one side of my regular opener to pop the lid if I hold my mouth just right LOL. I actually had a batch of small clear jars with screw lids to transfer my dusts into once I managed to get them open.

I know what you mean!!! Such a poor design. I also finally figured out to use the old fashioned bottle opener. Works like a charm.
