If you’re not a professional baker, it’s likely that you’ll never need more than one or two piping bags in your life. But if you are a professional, or if you bake a lot of fancy cakes and cookies for family, friends, and strangers, a good set of piping bags can make your life so much easier.
Piping bags come in many sizes and shapes, but some have certain qualities that make them special. I’ve compiled a list of the ten best piping bags for various uses to help you find what best suits your needs.
Which piping bags are best?
Weetiee Pastry Piping Bags are the best piping bags on the market. Aesthetically designed and crafted by an artisan with 20 years experience, these premium quality bags will last for many years.
What piping bags do professionals use?
It really depends on the use. For really thick frosting, cake batter, or other foods that are very viscous, many professionals might use a piping bag with a really wide opening (such as one with an opening of about ½ inch). We recommend the RICCLE Disposable Piping Bags and Weetiee Pastry Piping Bags.
What can I use instead of a piping bag?
It’s possible to use a zipper-sealed bag with a corner cut off, but it’s not very practical.
A ziplock sandwich bag could work for this purpose, but you need to be careful about what type of zipper sealer you’re using. A “V” shaped seamer will produce an undesirable looking cookie that oozes runny dough from its seams, whereas round sealers made of hard plastic or metal are preferable if the goal is to create evenly-shaped cookies that look pleasing.
A good piping bag is a kitchen essential. It makes the design process quick and easy without compromising quality. There are many choices when it comes to piping bags, but these ten are the best in the business.
