post #1 of 5

Can anyone tell me what a frosting sleeve is, how to make and apply to a cake?

I have heard of a commercial frosting product referred to as a Frosting sleeve. It would appear to be a disposable piping bag - probably made from plastic. Disposable bags are available from catering/cake decorating suppliers.

You can make your own from parchment or waxed paper.

Check these sites for instructions:

pastry bags

I have used disposable bags as well as reusable. I put the resuable in the dishwasher for washing/sanitizing and they are much cheaper than using disposable. People I know have reused the disposable, but this is not sanitary and could cause problems with contamination. They are convenient when fixing a cake upon delivery or finishing it, but please throw away after using once.
