What Is This Thing Called?
As per Krista Lee’s request, here’s a photo of my “piping dohickey”:
It’s totally awesome for decorating cakes or cookies, as I find that it is much easier on your hands to push the plunger to dispense the icing than it is to squeeze a decorator bag, particularly when you are decorating a huge cake or a tonne of cookies.
The drawback to this thingamabob is that it holds a small volume, so if you are trying to make, say, meringues, you spend a lot of time refilling the dohickey, because they require a much larger volume of mix than when you are just using it to decorate. I think I may need to get myself a proper decorating bag for my newfound love of making meringues!
