The Decorating Bag Holder provides a way to keep your frosting off the counter and even organize it for easy use. The stand is plastic, with metal legs that can fold in when you're not using it. It has two large spaces for holding large pastry bags, six medium spaces for holding disposable or smaller bags, and six small spaces for holding flower nails. It measures 11 1/2 inches by 7 1/8 inches by 4 5/8 inches.
The Decorating Bag Holder, which sells for $9.99, isn't a necessity for decorating cakes and cookies, but it can be useful if you are making a habit of mixing up frosting. If you're using more than one bag, it's not unusual to wind up with smudges of frosting all over the place and a holder can help you avoid that situation. It's also useful if you like making pastries at home.
