Thank you, and the photos spoke a thousand words.
I wish there was a 'Like' area in the forums as there is on Facebook. I loved some of the comments made, I so much relate to them...Thank you for taking the time to share.

Step 2. Take one side of the plastic wrap and fold it over to the next side matching up the edge - your frosting will now be enclosed on the side of the plastic wrap (Pic 2)

Step 3. Roll the plastic from where the frosting is to the edges (Pics 3 & 4)

Step 4: Twist the free end of the wrap (pic 5)

Step 5 (or 6 if you follow the optional "tie off"): You can now insert the plastic "tube" of icing into the decorating bag. (pic 7)

Just wanted to share. I think it's a pretty cool way to get the frosting in the bag and it isn't that messy either. Plus it makes switching frosting in and out so simple - if you're careful enough you won't have any transfer colour either.

WISH I WAS SMART ENOUGH TO INVENT THINGS LIKE THIS.

Great idea I was just thinking how I was going to get Royal icing to the venue for attaching flowers to cake. This would keep it usable for a while?
