HEY...again! Time for another baking tip!
Not one but two really quick and easy baking tips for cookie making and decorating!
#1: Filling Piping Bags
I had mentioned earlier that an easy way to keep your icing tips from clogging was to store them upright in a cup lined with moistened paper towels. How about filling your bags? Without help, filling bags can be annoying. Quick and easy solution? Use an appropriately sized cup (depending on your bag size) as your helper! Just open up the bag, stick it inside, and wrap the bag around your cup and spoon in your icing!
#2: Making All Cookies Even
This is a new trick that I tried today. Thanks to Haniela on YouTube which inspired this idea and at my trip to the craft store today I found the perfect birch panels for around 2$ a piece.
Use these planks to ensure all your cookies are the same width! It's kind of like using elastics on fondant rollers. The rolling pin hits the planks before your cookies can get too thin! Then just cut out your cookies as per usual!
Hope these tips are helpful!
Happy Rolling and Piping!
