Wilton Disposable Icing Bags

Wilton 2104-1358 Disposable 12-inch Decorating Bags, 24/ Pack


Review of Wilton Disposable Icing Bags

Wilton disposable icing bags are a really handy addition to the toolbox of any cake decorator.  They are available as both 12″ or 16″, and are made from strong, durable plastic which is also suitable for melting products in the microwave.  These icing bags fit standard icing tips and couplers.

Save yourself the time and mess of cleaning icing bags, and save time when using various colors.

So what do real customers think of these Wilton bags?

The Good

Customers were impressed with the durability of these icing bags.  They refilled them multiple times without having problems with leaking of bursting seams.

The convenience and lack of cleaning up are by far the biggest reasons for purchasing these cake decorating bags.

Most customers were pleased with this product price, and felt that it worked out as a cost effective alternative.

 The Not So Good

The biggest negative is the issue of waste.  Not everyone is happy with the “throw-away” culture that has become popular.

The other issue with the bags being so strong and durable is that they are not as “soft” or easy to handle as other bags.

Some people found the 12″ icing bags too small.

 Tips From Customers

You don’t even need to worry about nozzles, just snip a piece from the end of the bag and start icing!

Handy to use for other purposes too – tie up bags of marshmallows, cookes, candy etc – but be aware that the Wilton logo is on the bag!

Conclusion

A very handy and time saving product. These icing bags from Wilton are sturdy and a reasonable price. Very useful to have in your toolkit!

Reviews of Wilton Set of 10 Gum-Paste Modeling Tools

To be honest, most people over on this side of the Atlantic seem to favour using PME modelling tools.  They are by far the most common that I see around .  However, I have looked at this set in the Wilton catalogue a good few times, and the price seems reasonable in comparison.  And the case would be a very handy addition to this set.  So I was wondering how good these Wilton tools actually are.

There are 10 tools in this set which are numbered and colour coded to make them easy to find and organize.  The handles are designed to be easy to grip, and are ergonomically designed.  Seven of the tools are double-ended, so in reality you are getting 17 tools! The tools included are:

Shell tool and knife; large & small bone tool; quilting & cutting tool; scriber & cone tool; large & small veining tool; large & small ball tool; umbrella tool; palette knife and 2 modelling sticks.

Sounds good?! Well what do real customers who have tried this kit really think?

The Good

Customers seems to appreciate the variety of tools included in this kit, and say that it contains all that you need to get started with your cake decorating. The case and the fact that the tools are numbered makes it very east to store, transport and organize your tools.

Many of the customers were very happy with what they got for their money.

The Not So Good

A few people commented on the fact that some of the tools seemed a little bit too small to be effective.  One person also felt that the quilting tool was cutting strips instead of actually just embossing a pattern.

Some more professional cake decorators felt that the construction was a little bit cheap, and that there were small bumps and marks in them from the manufacturing.

Conclusion

From what I have read, beginners and home bakers seem to be very happy with this set of tools from Wilton.  However, if you are a more professional/commercial cake decorator, you might be better off investing in sturdier tools.

Reviews of Kuhn Rikon Cookie and Cupcake Decorating Set

Kuhn Rikon have come up with a great all round solution for decorating cookies and cupcakes.  It includes 4 squeezy decorating bottles for controlling 4 different icing colors, 5 decorating nozzles and 1 spatula.  Easy to use for kids and adults alike.

So what do customers think of this set?

The Good

Customers loved the versatility of being able to swap nozzles between the bottles.

Another good feature is that you can stand the bottles up between use which is less messy than using pastry bags.

A lot of people bought this set to be able to use with their kids, and the comments seem to show that the kids found them easy and fun to use.

The Not So Good

Some people found that the bottle cracked easily.  They also said that the bottles were to small to hold enough icing.

Another improvement that could be made is some sort of storage for all of the bits and pieces.

One complaint was that the openings were too small on the top making the bottles hard to fill, and also hard to clean.

Tips From Customers

To fill the bottles easily, put the icing in a ziplock bag, cut off one of the corners and squessze into the bottle.

Reviews of Kuhn Rikon Cookie Press

Kuhn Rikon Clear Cookie Press


New From: $20.00 USD In Stock

Make hundreds of cool cookies in one easy session with this cookie press from Kuhn Rikon.  So light and easy that you can even use it one handed (left or right!). Simply choose one of the 14 discs, fill with cookie mixture, and press down to create perfectly uniform cookies in no time.

The clear container makes it simple to see when you need to refill the mixture. Some versions come with an extra barrel so you can fill up with cookie mixture and don’t have to stop mid flow.

It also seems to come with an adapter so that you can use standard icing tips to make it a really versatile kitchen gadget.

So easy that even the kids can use it!

Pros

One customer compared this product favorably to some more popular brands.  She said that it was far easier to clean, and much easier to use, even with one hand leaving the other hand free.

The results are professional looking cookies, and the dough comes out smoothly and evenly.

Cons 

One customer said that despite making fantastic cookies, it did not produce great results when used for frosting.

Some people felt that the cookies were too small (1.5″-2″).

A couple of other people found that the plastic ring was a bit flimsy and either popped off or broke.

Tips from Customers

The instructions say that you should chill the cookie sheets and not grease them, and this was agreed upon by customers!

Remember that the discs are not suitable for use in the dishwasher.

Ensure that your cookie dough is not too thick, or it will be very hard to squeeze the trigger, and the results wont be good.
