fighting with my pastry bag - help me win

renee | Nov 6, 2005 02:58 PM

I made eclairs. They are great. Now I need to wash my pastry bag and can't get the plastic adapter out of the end of the bag. It's just on there too tightly. This is a 14 inch bag, if that helps. I had no problem getting the adapter out of the slightly larger bag that I used for the pastry cream. I've gotten the stuck bag thoroughly wet, and since I am in Florida this thing must be washed tonight, or some serious nastiness will ensue. please help!

I'm afraid to wedge a knife in between the canvas and the plastic, for fear that I will cut the bag. I've tried pulling the bag edges up around the adapter (which is what worked for the other bag).
