Thanks for that little add on about the shortening measuring cup trick! I totally never would've thought of that, such a good idea, I hate trying to scrape all the shortening out and then cleaning up the greasy mess! I bet that would work wonders with peanut butter too... I love making peanut butter pie too. Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

I have been using this method since Newlywed posted it in a thread about the best tip from their instructor. It was great for me, but when I offered a cupcake decorating club for 4th graders at school it was a lifesaver. More than 24 kids were accepted before we said "no more!" One of my friends helped me. We did cupcakes from Hello Cupcake and things ran smooth as glass because I had all the plugs made in advance. Think of 24 kids with several different colors. And yes, this is when you need to knot the end of the plastic, because they can not remember to squeeze from the top.
I also do decorating with my friends little ones, yeah 8 or 9 little guys under seven years old, most of them 3. I just make the plugs tie the plastic, use disposal decorating bags and seal the top of the decorating bag with one of those freezer sealer things. Haven't had an icing explosion yet!
I love decorating, but no one has more fun with it than a 3 year old. If you don't have one of your own-borrow one, unabashed fun, they are just so free and creative!

I love that you decorate with 3 year olds! My son is 3 and is so interested in what I do with cakes. You have inspired me to have some learning sessions with him soon. thanks!

You can also spray your measuring cup with pam before you use shorting and it workds especially good on measuring karo syrup. The stuff just slides right on out of there.

I read where a cup of Crisco weighs 6 ounces so now rather than using a measuring cup at all, I use a little food scale and weigh it out. No fuss and no mess! icon_biggrin.gif

Oh my gosh, I'm so pleased to know that a cup of Crisco weighs 6 ounces. I'm, so sick of measuring out 6 cups at a time. Next time I'll just put my bowl on the scale and dump it all in. Thank you so much!

Thanks for the tip, Debbie56. I tried several times to see what an average weight of Crisco was and never succeeded. I'd rather weigh than do all the scooping and whatever. Great tip!

Genius! This is a great tip!!!! Also, I don't have a scale, but I like the tip to use plastic wrap inside the measuring cup or spraying w/cooking spray.

what a great site!!! icon_smile.gif
