so im starting this job at a bakery and im going in for training and the baker there uses this different technique with her piping bags... she uses parchment paper bags but she doesnt use a coupler and doesnt put the tip in the bag she just holds the tip on the end of the bag and i was just wondering if anyone has heard of that before and if theres any videos of this?

I've never heard if that. Is she trying to save money by having one color bag that they can change the tips on several times. Can you actually do neat detail work with that kind of method? I am eager to see others comments.

I actually do this sometimes if I just need a little in a certain tip and didn't start out with a coupler. Like I put in a star tip for a border and then need to write on it, ill just hold the tip over the original. For me its usually a lazy/time saving thing.
