How to Use a Decorating Bag & Tip | Rosanna Pansino Video Tutorial


Hey guys it’s Ro, I wanted to make a video because I got so many questions about how to assemble these decorating bags that I use on my show Nerdy Nummies and to give you guys some more information about them. For those of you who watch my show know that I love Wilton decorating bags I’ve been using these for many years for many projects and when I first started baking I would decorate with just a regular plastic zip sandwich bag which technically they do work, you put frosting in and you can just snip the tip and then go to decorate but as time went on I decided to switch from this sandwich bag to a real decorating bag for a few reasons. One I wanted more control with my decorating which the tips provide and two the durability of this bag is very strong it can withstand a lot of pressure. Sometimes with my sandwich bag it would pop holes when I was squeezing it and trying to decorate When I visited the Wilton test kitchen I actually got to play with the machine that test the pressure on these bags and it was so fun. I know I have said it before but it felt like I was in high school science class and I was like dang those can withstand some pressure and they do, I have never had any issues with these. So now lets get started, let me show you how to assemble these bags because the first time I saw these I was a little bit intimidated I was like oh all that gadgetry is pretty fancy and I don’t know how to do that but it’s really easy. Step 1 is you are going to unscrew the coupler and place it in the bottom of your decorating bag. A coupler is this little plastic jobber over here and your just gonna unscrew it, it comes in two parts alright and then this is the part that we are going to place all the way at the bottom of the decorating bag. Now that the coupler is securely in there step 2 is we’re just going to cut off the excess at the tip of the bag. Step 3, is your going to place a tip on the top, any tip that you like I have a bunch laid out here. Lets do oh my favorite the grass tip, just place it right on top and secure with the second part of the coupler. Just twist it down, twist, twist, twist till it’s nice and tight. Step 4 is we are going to fill our bag with frosting. What I like to do is take a cup and just stick your bag in there and fold down the sides, you are going to scoop in your frosting and then the last and final step, step 5 is we are just going to tie our bag. So you are going to pull it up, I like to tie the top of the bag with these little elastic ties but you could whatever you like, you could also use hair ties, sometimes I have used those. You want to leave some room at the top of the bag if you tie it off to close to the end it turns into a frosting volcano I have done this and frosting will come out the back and it gets really messy, it’s a science pressure thing. So just make sure you give yourself a little bit of room and you will have no problems. There you have it all assembled, it’s time to decorate. I have a little cupcake down here and I will show you you just put a little pressure, make a little grass Let me show you how to switch the tip really quick because it’s really easy just unscrew, take off the old tip and put on the new tip and then secure. Easy way to switch up your designs, there are so many different kinds of tips this one is a 233 so that when you are watching my baking show and I reference ‘this is a number 2 tip, this is a number 1 tip’ you can find the exact same tip that I use to make that design, it makes it really easy and organized The grass tip is one of my favorites, I used it to make the Starcraft mineral cupcakes, I used it to make The League of Legends cake and I used a bigger grass tip to make the Grumpy Cat cake, she is pretty cute. I can’t even tell you how many types of tips there are, like this one is a tip 233, there is a lot of them so any design and detail you would like they probably got it and they are really inexpensive so building your collection of tips is really easy. I started with hand full now I have like a cupboard full. All the tips make different designs this one is a tip 104 lets see what this does very pretty Lets do another one. I could play with these for hours. I love these things, ohh this ones cool this is tip 47, lets play with him It’s got these teeth, ridges on the top but smooth on the bottom. Alright lets see what this one does, ah cool I have had this designs on many birthday cakes. Boom, let me know in the comments below if you have a favorite tip mine is 233, just a side note these tips are super easy to clean you could just pop them into the dishwasher or I have this little bristle brush that I like to use and I just run it under water and twist, twist, twist, twist and it cleans all the way to the end, easy peasy. Alright that’s it for decorating bags and tips I hope that you found this video helpful and I will
