"It's a bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see if it pays off for 'em."
I pinned this tip (video, 1:10 mark) for filling a piping bag with minimal muss and fuss a few weeks ago and I've been excited to try it out. So when I made red velvet cupcakes and vanilla cream cheese frosting for Husband's and my father-in-law's birthdays last week, I decided to give it a shot.
I recommend watching the video, but the basic principle is that rather than plopping and scraping frosting directly into a bag, you roll it up in plastic wrap and drop it in.
I've gotta say, it worked great. The ends of the plastic wrap did unwind pretty quickly, but I was using really cheap stuff and I think I overfilled it a tad. Still, there was almost no mess. The nice, clean bag made it much easier to remove my coupler when I was finished.
