You guys, I’ve discovered the easiest way to frost baked treats!
I’ve never been skilled at frosting cupcakes. Or cookies. Or cakes. Or anything.
I blame it on my mom. I try to blame as much on her as I can because it makes her laugh. You see, she remembers trying to teach me how to use a pastry bag to frost stuff. In theory, it sounds easy, but the reality is that the frosting ended up seeping out both sides of the bag until I was laced with frosting from fingers to forearms.
Nowadays I can get the frosting on top, but it’s akin to the slathering technique of a bricklayer mortaring bricks minus the finesse. So, I need as much help as possible when it comes to frosting, and I definitely am ready to up the fun factor because being covered in frosting is more fun for children than it is for adults.
If you’ve ever struggled with how to frost a cake, cupcakes or cookies, this is for you. Voila! The easiest way to frost is with the NEW Pillsbury™ Filled Pastry Bag – no muss, no fuss, just fun!
How to Frost Cakes, Cupcakes and Cookies the Easy Way
Let’s say you happen to have a freshly baked batch of carrot cake cupcakes.
Like these guys.
They need some pizzazz, wouldn’t you say?
Go to Food Lion and get the pizzazz.
In the land of carrot cake, pizzazz equals frosting and the best frosting is Pillsbury Creamy Supreme which just so happens to be available now in pre-filled Pastry Bags which you can find in the baking aisle at Food Lion.
It’s available in three delicious flavors: vanilla chocolate fudge, and cream cheese.
Helloooooo, cream cheese. Carrot cake and cream cheese frosting are dreamy together.
Get your NEW Pillsbury Filled Pastry Bag ready, and let’s create some frosting fun for the whole family!
1. Push the frosting toward the star tip and twist the top of the Pastry Bag.
2. Tear away the plastic cover from the star tip at the perforation.
3. Squeeze from the top of the pastry bag to start frosting your baked treats!
The built-in star tip makes it super easy to decorate in 3 fun designs: stars, rosettes and waves. It’s so much fun!
The Pastry Bag is nice and thick, and the star tip stays securely in place so you don’t have to worry about the frosting squeezing out of places where it’s not supposed to be squeezing. You can also rest assured there’s enough frosting in one Pastry Bag to decorate two dozen cupcakes or cookies or a regular-sized cake.
When not decorating, lay the pastry bag down on your work surface. This will help prevent the frosting from warming up too much as you work with it.
Another perk to the Pillsbury Pastry Bag is that the frosting comes pre-filled, so you’re not dealing with all those annoying air bubbles that build up when you have to fill a Pastry Bag yourself. The frosting flows out smoothly and is perfectly nice and creamy, but sets up quickly too.
And the design possibilities are endless. Besides who’s judging? No one! They’re all too busy clamoring for a turn with the Pastry Bag. Hint: Buy more than one so everyone can decorate at the same time.
The Pastry Bag is a game changer when it comes to making your baked treats even more special and delicious. Just imagine how much easier your fall and holiday baking will be this year. Try it!
