QUESTIONS!

How do you do the striped effect using this technique?

When you refrigerator the leftover icing in the bag, do you not need to rewhip it?




My answers. Striped effect would be simple. Say that you wanted purple and white, well you do one "plastic wrap" method for each frosting colour, but reduce the quantity of frosting so you don't have as much frosting in each piece of plastic. Then slip them in side by side. The colours will be seperated due to the plastic wrap, but once you start squeezing the colours out, they will combine.

Usually when I have leftover frosting (as long as I don't have any colours mixed, I will remove my tip and squeeze the excess frosting into a container, and will store it in the fridge, when I need it, I simply let it come to room temp and re-whip it.

I remember someone posting that a few months back when doing the striping effect. It is a great tip! Thanks for sharing.

OK!!! I did this today when setting up the "Ana" wedding cake. This is the best tip since Viva tip.

I will also incorporate this in the kids cake decorating BD parties that I do. This will save major time when trying to refill messy bags with frosting. And I won't have to rubber-band the end of the bag--how cook is that?

Okay....I'm like SUPER new to decorating and I'm like SUPER messy with the bags. I used this tip tonight on my superman cupcakes(in my pics) and it ROCKED!!!! There was hardly any mess to clean up at the end and my hands didn't get ANY frosing on them....no greasy fingers. Also, because of the hurricane (I'm in NC), our "Pool Party" on Saturday is being converted into a "Ice Cream Cone Cupcake Decorating Party". This tip will be PERFECT for the kids!!!!

THANKS FOR THE SUPERIFFIC TIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. I'm already in love with the plastic wrap in the measuring cup for crisco idea too!!!

Thanks for the tips, I know there is so much to learn on past forums,and it is hard to go back when you don't even know that it existed.... but I love that people have long memories and share their knowledge....
That is why I am addicted to CC, constantly learning about something that I love!!
