I'm notorious for getting frosting just about everywhere when I start decorating cookies and cakes. A lot of that mess can be attributed to the tools I use, but an upgrade to Kuhn Rikon's Squeezable Decorating Kit seems like a simple solution. The kit includes decorating bottles that let you place frosting exactly where you want it without having to manage a big bag full of the sweet stuff. With the included decorating tips, your decorating job will be just as attractive as it might have been with a bag. The bottles provide a much better level of control, and they can even be used to store frosting between decorating sessions. The different sizes of bottles offer an added level of control, due to their different shapes. Using the bottles is a simple matter: you mix up the frosting recipe of your choice, add coloring and scoop it into the bottles.
The Squeezable Decorating Kit comes with two tall decorating bottles, three short decorating bottles, a frosting spatula, and five interchangeable decorating tips (ribbon, leaf, star, basketweave, and round). The bottles are plastic, while the decorating tips are steel. Each item should be washed by hand. The full kit is available for $20.
