How to use a pastry bag


Pastry bags are very useful for preparing certain types of cookies such as Krumiri and to decorate cakes and other desserts.


Select a tip for the pastry bag suitable for the recipe you are making.

Push it through the hole at the tip of the bag until comes out from the other end.

Make sure it fits snugly against the walls of the bag.

Fold the top part of the bag over your hand to form a collar.

With the help of a spatula, add the cream, icing or batter to the pastry bag.

Squeeze the contents down using your hand and squeeze out any air.

Twist the top of the pocket around the thumb so that you can easily control the speed at which you push out the contents.

With the other hand guide the tip of the pastry bag.
