Review: OodleTip Pastry Bags

by Erin

When it comes to baking, frosting can sometimes be a challenge, especially when using tips and pastry bags. Seeing a need, Brenda Grimes invented the OodleTip® pastry bag – the World’s only disposable pasty bag with an attached versatile tip. The OodleTip® bag debuted this past March 2013 at the International Housewares Show in Chicago. Since then the OodleTip® bag has been picked up by companies around the world. Michaels Craft Stores will begin carrying the OodleTip® & Little OodleDoodle® (for children) this month.

OodleTip® Bag Features and Benefits:

  • One piece bag with an attached tip – no more hassle assembling and dismantling

    • Food-Filling and large Swirl Size = 1”

  • Flexible squeezable tip – no clogging during food filling
  • Retail box package includes: 10 disposable, 16″ OodleTip® bags with attached tips
  • MSRP: $9.99                         


I received samples of this product a couple months ago and have enjoyed using them for all of my frosting, filling, and piping needs. Since I don’t do a lot of mass quantity baking, I tended to use more of the OodleDoodles (meant for kids), but both kinds work the same. You start out with a plastic bag already fitted with a versatile tip. I liked to fill my bag before proceeding any further, ensuring that none of my filling/frosting would ooze out. Depending on the shape desired, you then cut the tip with a pair of scissors at the appropriate spot. One cool idea is that you could start with a writing tip, and then cut higher to change to a star.

After cutting you are free to squeeze away just like you would with a normal bag and tip set-up. The tip is also flexible, making it easy to squeeze out every last drop of frosting. Something you could not do with a normal metal tip. My only hesitation with using these tips is that I am the type of person that washes and reuses zip-top baggies, so it felt wrong to throw away these pastry bags. I actually did wash and reuse a couple of them, and they withstood the reuse. (And it was nice not worrying about the tip falling into the garbage disposal, subsequently being forgotten and ruined.)

So what did I make using these OodleTips? Remember these Peanut Butter Mousse Cookie Cups? I cut the tip to a round shape to fill these babies.

Then, I cut the tip to a star to frost these White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes.

Cutting to a French star resulted in the frosting on top of these Hazelnut Baci Cupcakes.

And finally, I also used the French tip to top this lemon curd with meringue. Not my best piping job ever, but it still tasted wonderful!

What do you think? Would you prefer using these OodleTips over the tradition piping bag fitted with a metal tip?
