Thanks for that awesome tip! My mom decorated cakes when I was a child and I always wanted to play with the icing bags. She told me I could play but I had to clean them! Now that I'm getting into decorating I know why she gave me that job. I hate cleaning the bags! Between your great tip and the tip someone else had about lining the measuring cup with plastic wrap for measuring the Crisco, most of the dirty work is done!
Thanks again for the tip and the step-by-step photos!!
