Tips

Frost or glaze

Frost or glaze

Who needs $ dollars worth of decorating tools and bags if you are not going into business. Easy way to decorate cupcakes or write name and cakes or even drizzle glaze onto foods, use a heavy duty small ziploc type bag filled with frosting or glaze. Snip the tip and you're in for an easy and inexpensive way to decorate in a pinch. And now for the best part, clean up is a snap! Toss it in the trash and you're done.


Preparation Tip

Preparation Tip

Butter or margarine will cut easier into the flour mixture if it is chilled. Use two knives or a pastry cutter to cut the mixture into crumbs.
