Twist Quick Coupler a New Twist on a Decorator Favorite

April 21st, 2013 by Traci Chapple

After completing the Wilton Master’s Class at the Wilton School of Cake Decorating last year, I fell head over heels with making special treats for my family and friends. After intense practice mastering all types of techniques, one little tool proved to be invaluable: the icing tip coupler.

Twist Quick Coupler Set

The nifty thing about using couplers is that you can quickly change decorating tips without ever having to change your bag of icing. This is especially helpful for me since I LOVE monochromatic cake designs. All pink? Yes please!

But just because it’s all pink doesn’t mean I want to use the same tip and technique over and over again. Thus: the coupler!

The Twist Quick Coupler is Wilton’s new coupler system that works with standard icing tips. When we designed the new Twist Quick Coupler, there were a few things we accomplished to make this irreplaceable tool even easier to use:

  • Quick half-turn to fasten on your tip! (Did I mention it’s super easy to thread?)
  • Faster and easier switching out tips!
  • Storage cap to keep anything left in the bag fresh!

Now I can create different designs on each of my cupcakes all using the same bag of icing. What will you use your new Twist Quick Couplers to create?

    Besides the fourth piece cover, I don’t understand why the second white piece is needed.

  5. sarah says:

    I like the idea of a cover (closing) piece over the icing bag opening at the tip. We have been needing that piece. but why the extra piece?

  6. Anita says:

    This looks like a great helper, need to get one of those! I hate changing bags of icing just to be able to use a different tip… And the fact that you can use it with any silicon/plastic bags is also great!

    I do wonder whether you can use other tips with it however? As I also have a bunch of different ones at home.

    Thank you!

    I have this coupler set. The big tips (1M, 2D) will not fit but the standard sized tips will fit. It is quick to twist off. To use the purple storage piece, you have to remove the tip and the purple part of the coupler. To avoid loose pieces, I hope they come out with one that has a snap-on storage piece that goes over the tip and all. I also hope they come out with one that will accommodate both the large and standard tips.

  12. Marsha Edgerton says:

    No, thanks! Just more pieces to wash and keep up with that have no measurable benefit over the old coupler system.

    I have tried the twist quick coupler. I like it real well. I am planning on buying 2 or 3 more of them.

  17. Lauren says:

    I want to get a larger cupcake decorating star tip for doing larger rosettes. Will they fit into this coupler since i have this one already?

  18. Dana says:

    The extra white piece is a bag cutter. Put it on the couple (inside the pastry bag) and squeeze the little buttons on the side and twist to cut off the bag tip off before twisting on the coupled piece that goes on the outside that holds the tip then twist on the final purple piece.

    Did anyone figure out if the large tips should work with the twist coupled?? Wondering why the set I bought wih the twist coupler includes larger tips if they don’t work with the twistable coupling unit?? Also no instructions with the set.
