Too stretchy to pipe,
This review is from: NEW TALA SILICONE PIPING BAG & LARGE NOZZLE SET ICING CREAM POTATOES ETC 9928 (Kitchen & Home)
I bought this to pipe mashed potato which it said it was suitable for on the box. Sadly not the case, not fit for purpose. The silicon bag stretched too much to create enough pressure for the mash to come out of the widest nozzle in the kit. The mash kept breaking up looking more like crusty dog poo which led me to call my fish pie, Poopy Pie that night (much to my sister's hilarity and my niece going urgh and refusing to eat the pie!) I ended up forking the mash once I'd piped it defeating the whole purpose of piping. I don't recommend. Get a proper bag instead.

Sounds more like the mash is the problem. Doubt it was the bag and nozzle. Good, creamy mash wouldn't break up. It's only going to break up if it's dry, crusty mash.

it wasn't so much that the mash was breaking up, the bag was too stretchy to create enough pressure to come out of the bag. The mash was the right eating consistency not dry and crusty (eww) , any looser it would be too wet once the pie was baking. No problem with mash before. I suspect it's a problem with the mash being warm, cold icing might not have the same effect on the silicon. I'm not the only one complaining of the bag being stretchy.
