How full should you fill a piping bag?

How full should you fill a piping bag?

Fill the bag no more than 2/3 full. Unfold the cuff, push the icing all the way down, and twist the bag where the icing ends. If you’ll be working with the icing for a while, consider using bag ties or twist ties. I like to put one at the top of the icing and one near the top of the bag.

Does the nozzle go inside the piping bag?

A coupler is a two-part small plastic nozzle that fits inside a piping bag so that you can change icing tips with ease. You can use icing tips with no couplers, just push the tip inside the bag and cut the end off, allowing just the end of the tip to stick out.

How do you keep piping bags from leaking?

If you’re using a runny filling or are prepping your piping bag to use later, try this trick: after you’ve inserted the coupler, twist the bag just above the coupler and tuck it inside. This creates a barrier to prevent any filling from leaking through.
