It’s Tip Friday on Marilyn’s Treats. And todays tip is Filling a Pastry Bag!
Filling a pastry bag
Most people wish they had three hands when it comes to filling a pastry bag! Here are some hints to make it easier:
A tall, narrow container with a heavy base is a great holder to steady and support the bag as you fill it, so your hands are free to put frosting or batter into the bag.
Be sure to fill the bag no more than three-quarters full. Overfilling the bag makes it hard to close and hard to control. It should fit comfortably in your hands.
A twist tie is a big help to keep the top of the bag closed, so icing doesn’t back up onto your hand when you squeeze the bag.
