Hi,

I need a piping bag set (one that includes a large plain nozzle) that isn't going to cost me an arm and a leg.

I've tried Wilko's but they only had ones with teeny nozzles. I have a syringe icing set but its absolutely useless so I want to go back to tradition and use an icing bag. I need it by Thursday so don't want to risk ordering online in case it doesn't come or turns up when I'm at work.

Can someone help me out? I live in the ecclesall area but would happily go into town if it meant I could get my hands on one!

The new Boundry Mills at Catcliffe sells them.. I bought a piping bag with nozzles there this afternoon for only 5.95..

They do a few different sets too, so well worth a look if you can get there..

Before you ask for anything more, be sure to realise what you already have..

Cakecraft in the gallery above the market in town would probably have one. You could try ringing them first to save you a wasted journey - 272 8606.

Thanks so much for all your replys!

I work quite close to the one on abbeydale road so might try there tomorrow on my way home

I'll call cake craft tomorrow. I've heard their name mentioned before so it's worth a try!

Failing those, I'll try Williamson's. Never heard of it before but just done a google search and it seems popular!!

I think Rotherham and Catcliffe are a bit out of my way, I have to rely on public transport so want to stay pretty close to home.

Thanks again, didn't expect to get so much useful information so quickly

Hi! Use disposable bags as you don't need coupler. The Wilton 1M which makes the big swirls you see on cupcakes is about 2-3.

The crazy about cake craft shop about the markets in town have them and they also have a website now too.

Thank you for thanking us! So often you try to provide help for someone, only for them never to acknowledge it!

I think I saw some hung on a hook or placard at the side of the shelves in B and M Bargains, Chesterfield Road the other day.

Ahh, brilliant. That's saved me a phone call tomorrow and a traipse around town tomorrow in the rain Thanks so much!

I was brought up with good manners! If you can take the time to respond, the least I can do is say thanks. I've never posted on here before today but from now on I'll be a regular!

I never even thought of there! I go past that shop everyday and it would never have occurred to me to check. Thank you

It depends what you want them for and how serious you are about it. My advice as a retired serious cake decorator is don't by cheap plastic rubbish. I would highly recommend Russums Rotherham for the tubes, as for piping bags, buy a roll of greaseproof paper and make your own, a lot cheaper.

It's not for anything special, just for events at work. I won't be attempting to sell them to the public or anything! I'm quite a skilled baker and I am confident enough to do anything but piping has always been my achilles heel. I have an event coming up so want to try and get some practise in. Thanks for the advice. I would have steered clear of plastic tubes as these have let me down before. That's a great tip about the greaseproof! I'll remember that

If you're wanting to use a large nozzle, Im not sure a greaseproof bag would be strong enough to hold enough icing/frosting to make it worthwhile. I'm a bit like you, I make cakes for charity events & friends etc. I bought a roll of disposable piping bags from Lakeland. They cost 8.99 (bit pricey, I admit. I didn't realise they did a cheaper version at 6.19) but they are useful and they're lasting a good long time. However, when I was checking the prices I found a link to a place in Milton Keynes that seems to sell a vast range of cake related stuff at reasonable prices (including a roll of 100 piping bags for 3.95). I know it's no good to you right now but it's here http://www.cn-ice.com/ I'll certainly be having a look next time I need to stock up on things. Postage seems to be 2.95 - worth it if you're ordering a few things at the same time.

You're a mine of information! I went into crazy about cakecraft on my way home and got exactly what I needed. It's a fantastic shop. It's a shame it's so hidden away! I picked up a few disposable bags as well so I think I'm all set now. I've added that website to my favourites so I can treat myself to a few things. Thanks so much for all your help. You're a star!
