Topic: Jumbo Couplers?
amandaw1492 02/27/2012 9:11 PM
So I bought a set of 4 Wilton icing tips at Wal-Mart and the regular size couplers I have are too small. I just recieved my Large couplers in the mail only to realize that they are wayyyyyyyyyyy to big! The large size is the professional size. When I got on the website a month or so ago, they had a jumbo size, and that's what fit the icing tips that I have. Now, I can't find them anywhere on the website! What happened to the jumbo size?

I don't use couplers on anything other than the "regular" size. I cut the piping bag and just put the tip in.. Like parchment bags. Sorry not very good at explaining- Like the base icing tip- I cut the largest reusable piping bag and use it for that one solely.

amandaw1492, welcome to the forum. What tips do you have that won't fit on the standard couplers? There should be a number on each tip.

amandaw, welcome! Do you have the 1M tip, the triple star tip and maybe the 2D tip that you need a coupler for? I found mine at Michael's or Hobby Lobby.

I agree that you can cut one of your featherweight bags to just accept the tip. I like the stability of the coupler myself.

I have featherweight bags cut to fit specific tips. I do not use couplers for the really big tips like 1M, 2D, 6B etc etc.

Saw the couplers I mentioned at Michael's last night for $1.99 each.

I have tips 1M, 2D and 2A. They came in a 3 pack "Extra Large Tip Set". I will look at Michael's the next time I go. The Michael's that is near me has a pretty small cake baking and decorating section. Thanks for the warm welcome and the helpful tips! Also, should I order some featherweight bags? What's the difference between those and the regular bags?

Hi and welcome to the forum. You're just starting out, so you'll be learning a lot of stuff as you go.

When I started my Wilton courses, I purchased 2 of the large couplers. I have NEVER used either one and probably never will. I use disposable decorating bags 95% of the time. Just cut the appropriate amount off the bag and slip in the 1M (and other large tips). You don't need a coupler.

Here is a link with information and a video on how to cut bags, use tips, and the difference between featherweight and disposable:
