For those who decorate your own cakes...

How do you get the coupler out of the inside of the cake decorating bag bag after you're done? I have the hardest time with it. Is there an easy way? Or am I just pushing it into the bag too far so it becomes stuck? Or do you just toss it with the bag and buy a new one?

  • I run hot water through it and it eventually comes loose.

  • its frustrating, eh? i just peel it off, with the help of a cut from a sharp knife.

  • yes, hot water will 'soften' the plastic to make it easier to remove.

  • Thanks, I'll have to try hot water. I cut my finger today trying to use a knife to cut the bag. Luckily it's not a bad cut. lol

  • I have reuseable bags, so I just turn it inside out and pop it out. I don't see why you couldn't do the same with a disposable bag.

  • If it's a reusable bag, I'll turn the bag inside out. If it's a disposable bag, I use scissors to cut the bag open as far as possible, which is enough to pull the coupler out of the bag.
