Our icing of cookies is never very, well, controlled. I can manipulate a traditional cake icing bag, but the girls have a lot of trouble with it. I guess the management of squeezing and holding the nozzle at the same time can be a little like patting your head whilst rubbing your tum.
I know you can buy pre-prepared icing in squeezy tubes, but I don't like to partly because of the cost but mainly, icing is such a simple thing, you surely don't need to buy it and also have additional additives added to the mix? I recently saw something, I think in Martha Stewart or definitely something US based (of course I can't find it anywhere now), where you could buy soft plastic sauce type bottles that the icing nozzles fit onto. They then concertiner down (the profile was like a pleated skirt) so you could squeeze every last drop out of it. Those, I think, would be quite easy for a child to manage.
Has anyone seen/bought anything like this within Australia or know of someone who ships here without customs issues?
