Thanks newlywedws for bringing that thread up again, it's probably the best tip I learned from CC and should be a mainstay on this site. I keep it in my favorites for reference so I can mention & link it whenever I possible, and make sure I give you credit. Like everyone else says-we have read the tip but never understood it. By taking the time to photograph every step for us, we finally get it & it's saved literaly hundreds of hours for me, so thanks very much for taking the time for us.

I use this method a lot-if I have extra icing and don't want to waste it, I pop it in a plastic wrap & freeze it. I also use it on my color the icing day-I spend one day making & coloring buttercream so I will have an array of colors for decorating. I freeze them by color & date them. It's worked out really well for me, I've never had to stop decorating because I didn't have a specific color on hand. It's even saved me with plain white bc-I needed to fix something and didn't have one drop left so I grabbed one from the freezer and finished up-thankfully it was a good color match.

Kudos to you newlywedws for sharing this phenomenal tip, it's worth it's weight in gold.

The freezing thing sounds like something I should start doing! With a 14month old and a three year old that sounds like a tip that will save me some time! I do have a question, Antylucifer, about defrosting the icing. How do you defrost it? Does the bc still pipes well without remixing the icing? I have never frozen bc and I'm not sure what works and what doesnt. Thanks!

I have always used a new disposable decorating bag each time. WOW. I'm really excited to use this new trick. I almost walked away from the comptuer this morning feeling guilty for spending too much time. I am SO glad I clicked open this tip.
thanks

Wow... thanks to newlywedws & Antylucifer for sharing the great tips!

The icing plugs will save a lot of clean up time and I really like the idea of "icing" day and placing them in the freezer.

Thank-you for the tip. This will help with clean up and to prevent the icing from getting over my hands. My least favorite thing WAS cleaning the bags. Ican't wait to try your tip.
