  • Place your gallon zip top bag in a cup. Fold the top of the bag down over the top of the cup. Fill the bag with frosting. You may want to start with half of the frosting. Pull the bag out and push the frosting to one corner of the bag.
  • Once you’ve got all the frosting down to one corner, twist the bag at top of the frosting. This will prevent the frosting from going up as you squeeze. Make a small to medium cut off the bottom corner of the bag. Start small because you can always make a bigger cut if needed.
  • Do practice piping on a plate. You can always add that frosting back into the bag.
  • Do not be worried if they aren’t perfect.
  • Play with your frosting and have fun.
