    Ditto exactly!

    Ummm...I would give bags a try although I kinda have a hate-hate relationship with them...totally prefer bottles - I might need extra time & a one-on-one session to use bags! After my last cake I was wondering how I could use bottles with buttercream (in my dreams hehehe!)

    That's true! I would actually love a glaze session - I do better with RI but sometimes I like to use glaze...

    Hey gals,
    We plan on having all kinds of combos of icing and tools to choose from. Anita I had forgotten about the bottles, but will make sure those are available in the classes.
    Great thoughts, y'all!

    I have to admit that I am a bottle girl. I just can't master the bag. My RI in a bag seems to "melt" in my hot little hand and get much thinner than I like. Old habits are hard to break!

    I have bottles, and cannot use them because my thumb can't push hard enough. So all bags for me. I have my bottles bagged up to bring to Spring Fling if we have a swap!

    I spent today resorting and labeling cutter boxes! Fun!
