Smile Piping bags to decorate cupcakes

What are your thoughts on disposable plastic piping bags that are half textured and half see though from the outside? The textured side is for grip and the see through side allows you to see the colors and air bubbles of the frosting. Do you like piping bags with textured grip? I personally think this would be a good idea, but let me know what you guys think!

Hello Frosting and Welcome to DC.

Bit of a weird idea, imo.

Frosting bags are pliable, whether they are plastic or parchment. Not any real need for textured.

And unless the bag is like the old cloth ones that were filmed on the inside, which I haven't seen since 'Hector was a puppy", colour can be seen through parchment and plastic.

It just sound like a marketing gimmick to me. Try them if you must but personally think you'd be wasting your money. If you make as many cupcakes as your name suggests I imagine you would be rather disappointed.

Where did you see them?

The less disposable plastic the better, IMO

I agree.

And, with a reusable piping bag, you can choose from a variety of tips to give different shapes and effects to the frosting.

oops that should be 'wash'

taxy - all bags use a coupler that allows changing tips without emptying the bag.

Welcome to the forum!

I very rarely use those, but I have washable ones. Do those textured ones cost more, or are they just sort of replacing the old kind? Maybe it's something the professionals came up with, for hours and hours of using them.

I think I got rid of my old cloth ones, but I'm not sure.

Even the one use bags? Sounds extra wasteful to me.
