Do you also love to make sugar-sweet treats such as cakes, puffs or cupcakes on your own (and then of course to eat full of pleasure) ">
The baking is in full swing and then that: you have rummaged through all the kitchen cabinets, but nowhere hides a spray bag or a piping bag. Of course, at this point you could still send your sweetheart to get the much needed utensil in the store (unless it's late evening, night or early morning). Faster, less expensive and at least as effective, however, it is to tinker the syringe bag or the piping bag itself. We have selected the two most common instructions and present them below. Do not worry, you do not have to be a handyman to create the practical aids yourself. Just follow each step and your syringe bag or piping bag is ready and ready in no time!
In fact, there are various ways to make a syringe bag or a piping bag yourself. In our DIY guide, we have decided on the two variants that are used most frequently and thus are the most tried and tested. Nothing can go wrong with the baking paper or freezer bag version. The so-designed sachets serve their purpose 100 percent - not only in the functional sense, but also in terms of hygiene. At the end, simply throw away the used bags - no previous washing is necessary. Enough of the introductory words - let's go!
Variant # 1: sachet made of baking paper
You need this:
- baking paper
- sharp knife
- Staple or paper clip
How to proceed:
Step 1: Pick up a sheet of baking paper and cut out of it a square with a side of 25 cm.
Tip: You can also vary the side length, depending on whether you prefer to operate with a smaller or larger injection bag.
Step 2: Fold the square diagonally from one corner to the other.
Step 3: Divide the double triangle into two separate triangles by folding it in the previous one. It is best to use a sharp knife (as in the case of a clean opening of a letter). The two triangles, however, remain on top of each other. This makes the bag more robust.
Step 4: Place the double triangle in front of you so that the side you cut through earlier is facing up. To you is directed the opposite peak.
Tip: On the above picture you can see the letters A, B and C marked by us as well as an arrow. These marks help you understand and follow the steps below.
Step 5: Gradually shape a tapered cone. To do this, first place the left-hand corner A on the bottom right corner C.
Step 6: Then grab to the right corner B and place it to the left until it reaches below the corner C.
Step 7: Now fold the corners A, B and C inwards to give the squeeze bag more stability.
Tip: To further increase this stability, it is best to staple the point with a staple.
Step 8: Place the syringe bag in a sturdy container, such as a glass, to fill.
Step 9: Fill the syringe bag with the decoration of your choice - for example, cream or marmalade.
Step 10: Fold the opening of the syringe bag.
Step 11: Use a pair of scissors to cut off the tip of the bag - depending on the desired line width, remove a more or less large piece. 1 to 2 mm are sufficient, however, as a rule.
Variant # 2: Spritztüte from freezer bag
You need this:
- freeze bag
How to proceed:
Step 1: Grab a freezer bag and fill it with the mass you want to squirt.
Step 2: Close the bag.
Step 3: Then grab the scissors and cut off one of the two lower corners of the freezer bag. As with the pastry bag made of baking paper, you can even decide on the converted freezer bag yourself how narrow or wide you cut the corner.
Tip: Cut off less, so that the hole is not too big. Again, a very small hole is usually absolutely enough. Should it be too small, you can still refill and enlarge it.
Step 4: Hold the pouch on top and apply pressure evenly to spray the cream, cream or couverture accurately.
A) If you want to squirt cream or similar light masses, just make a jar of baking paper. If, on the other hand, thicker, tougher dough (such as biscuit dough) is to be processed, it is advisable to use the variant of the converted freezer bag, since it is stronger and thus more stable than the bag made of baking paper.
B) Facilitate the filling process by placing the self-created piping bag in a tall container and knocking the edge outward - around the edge of the container.
C) Fill the injection bag only up to half (maximum). In this way the mass can be handled more easily.
D) Do not cover the piping bag with your whole hand, but only with your thumb and forefinger. Otherwise, it is quite possible that the mass liquefied by your hand heat.
As you can tell from our detailed instructions, making a pastry bag from baking paper or a freezer bag is neither difficult nor time-consuming. The necessary utensils you have commonly at any time at home, so that there is no problem to conjure up the baking tool itself. Then there is nothing in the way of a nice - and above all, elegantly decorated - dessert. We hope you enjoy crafting and good appetite!
