Decorating Tips: Frosting!

27 Feb

The frosting on a dessert is the finishing touch. It adds a dab of creativity and makes your baked good complete. The baked good that is most popular for its frosting finish is the cupcake. Unfortunately, this is ┬ámy least favorite part about buying a cupcake from a bakery. I am not a fan of heavy, very sugary and thick frostings that often crowns the delicious dessert. But when I try to re-create the signature frosting swirls at home, it just doesn’t look the same–until I discovered this easy decorating trick that doesn’t require the purchase of any expensive frosting bags or frosting tips. All you need is your favorite frosting (store-bought or homemade works), and a Ziploc bag.

In the video below, I demonstrate how easy it is to make your own decorative frosting swirl, with as much, or as little frosting as your heart desires. Take a look! (Note: I am in NO WAY a professional cinematographer, and shot this video with the microwave as my tripod. And my film production roommate was out of town! Darn it!)

I want to see how your frosting swirls turn out! Email me pictures of your latest baking creations to be featured on the site: itsacakewalkblog (at) gmail (dot) com.

Have fun decorating! Remember–it’s a cake walk!
