How to fill a piping bag : a video tutorial

We've seen how to assemble a piping bag and which tips to use for basic decorating.  How about actually filling that bag with icing?

***My 11-year-old videographer may or may not have had too much sugar before filming. There is a lot of camera movement and zooming in and out.  If that sort of thing makes you dizzy, consider yourself warned.***

Those strawberry cookies I mentioned in the post are here.  The grill cookies.....yeah, those didn't turn out so great.  And the evidence has been eaten.

This is great! The first time I used a piping bag I filled it up to the top, haha. And then wondered how I was going to squeeze the icing onto my cupcake without it coming out the other end.

Great job with the video, to both the teacher and the camera man. :)

Thank you Bridget for that tip on filling your piping bag. I always seemed to make a mess. I'm venturing on a new hobby and hopefully business. I'm learning to decorate cake and cookies.

I just want to thank you so much for putting together this great blog. I've learned so much already and found such great baking blogs to add to my ever growing list. Your tips truly are the reason I am having so much fun and success on my first attempts decorating sugar cookies. I've shared it with all my baking friends.
