Reply to "Bubbles in My Icing"

I found a new way to get almost all the bubbles out of my icing fast. Because I still use icing bags, I lay out a sheet of press-n-seal, sticky side up an put my icing in the middle. Then I smooth it out with a wide flat knife or off set spatula, but try to smooth back and forth, so I keep the icing kind of in the middle. Then i fold one side of the plastic over leaving about an inch from the other edge so I have sticky left, and stick down all sides except the ends (where I will later twist to go into my icing bag). Then with the plastic over the icing and sealed on the top to keep icing from oozing out, I start smoothing again with my hand or a spatula and easily go back and forth in the middle and out toward the edges and the bubbles move out. Then I roll up the icing in the plastic and twist the ends of the plastic wrap, so it will fit into the bag. I still get bubbles once in a while, but this has been my best way to get rid of them. When I am done with that bag of icing, if I want to keep the icing, I just take out the inside wrap, squeeze out the icing into a container and either toss the bag, or rinse it. It is very easy clean up. I got the bag idea from Sugarbelle and I believe I see many others using it. I still try the parchment bag once in a while, but have not mastered it. I think when I do, I will like it very much though. But for stopping the bubbles, this has been working very well!
