I have a wicked sweet tooth. If you know me, then it’s no surprise, it’s more like I have sweet teeth. Beautifully decorated desserts however are not my forte. But, that doesn’t stop me from trying to make them. I’m stubborn and we’ll leave it at that. I can make a tasty treat (cakes, cookies, brownies, bars and all that jazz) all day long but fancying it up, that takes a little smoke and mirrors, and perhaps a few you tube tutorials for me.
My mom would make the most amazing birthday cakes. She’d set up her piping bags, with different tips, different colored frostings and like a painter working on a blank canvas she went to work. Like magic, the cake would transform right before my eyes. I was amazed and elated every single time she made one. It was as delicious as it was beautiful.
While I can’t decorate like she did I did learn a few shortcuts that have stayed with me.
One shortcut in particular was to use piping bags. She preferred the reusable piping bags (that were really hard to clean – that was my job). I go with the disposable ones. Let’s just say that all that cleaning did me in, y’all know that cleaning dishes is my leaset favorite kitchen task.
Using piping bags, in my opinion, makes the frosting easier to apply. Getting that frosting into a piping bag, well that’s a little messy. I usually start with a large drinking glass, place the piping bag inside and then as carefully as possible take a spatula and shove the frosting into the bag. There’s usually as much on me and the outside of the top of the piping bag as ends up inside.
E for effort right?
There’s a happy ending to this decorating story. Baking just got a whole lot easier with the help of Pillsbury™ Filled Pastry Bags. You can find them in frosting section of the baking aisle at your local Walmart. They’re available in THREE flavors: vanilla, chocolate, and cream cheese.
Pillsbury Pastry Bag – Vanilla 16oz
Pillsbury Pastry Bag – Chocolate Fudge 16oz
Pillsbury Pastry Bag – Cream Cheese 16oz
There are simple instructions on the outside of the box for using the filled pastry bags.
I chose VANILLA and paired it with Pillsbury Funfetti® cupcakes. The filled pastry bags even come with a build in star tip! You can create stars, rosettes or even waves using this tip. Options, you know we love options. You really don’t need a handful of tools to create something special when you’re using Pillsbury Filled Pastry Bags.
How fun would these be for a children’s birthday party or sleepover, or even end of year school party? Set out a few filled pastry bags and place a tablecloth down on the table to keep messes to a minimum (maybe I’m the only messy person). A dozen or so cookies, a few varieties of sprinkles or fun toppings and let me decorate to their heart’s content. Best part? It’s EASY and edible!
Frosting made fun and easy for the whole family with Pillsbury Filled Pastry Bags. What will you do with yours?
