Newlywedws "frosting Plug/Plastic Wrap" Method

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.

Cool. Yesterday someone from the highly viewed cupcake forum told me about this method, but I was a little unsure how to do it. Those instructional pictures are great!

I had heard about this method, and I too was not clear on the how to do's. Thank you flayvurdfun for the visual lesson on this method.

This was one of the things on the post that said something like "everyone respond to this" where people listed all their favorite tricks. Thanks for putting the pictures, that is definitely one of the best tips! best of all you don't have to be very exact about rolling it up in the saran wrap! You mentioned to match the edges, but you don't have to. Just roll it up like you would roll up anything! I also do not tie a knot on the end. unnecessary.

I love that I can use the same decorating bag for the whole cake! I can switch colors no problem, I love it!

I saw this a couple of weeks ago and thought the idea was amazing. Thanks for sharing.

Funny, I was just googling to find figure piping books and came across the kitchencrafts website and they have for sale "plastic inserts for your standard piping bag to make a striped effect in your frosting" - Ateco sells them.

I'll stick with your way - THANK YOU!!!

Saw this tip a couple of weeks ago and it came just in time for some NFSC w/RI. I was able to just change plugs and use as many colors as I wanted with just one bag and no-hassle "loading" Just the best ever, along with lining you measuring cup w/plastic wrap before putting the shortening in it and then just pulling it out with no cleaning! I love this site! icon_biggrin.gif
