Have you ever avoided decorating cookies or cakes because of how big of a pain it is to make multiple colors? So have I! So here is my insider secret to cutting down on dishes and time!
What you will need:
1. Wilton disposable piping bags
2. Muffin tin
3. A spoon/small spatula for every color you are making
4. Tooth Picks or Popsicle sticks
5. Wilton color gels
7. Piping tips
Once you have gathered all your needed materials its pretty simple! This works with simple powdered sugar based cookie frosting/glaze or nice thick cake decorating icing like buttercream or cream cheese.
Start buy filling your muffin tin with frosting, about 3/4 full so you have space for stirring.
Next use a tooth pick or Popsicle stick to add color to each section of icing. Make sure to never double dip your tooth pick into the coloring gel! It will ruin it for future projects. Its best to use one tooth pick for collecting the gel and another to scrape the gel off the first tooth pick allowing it to fall into the frosting.
Then use a spoon to mix the color into the frosting. Make sure to scrape the sides so the color is consistent and you don't get white patches.
Now you prepare you piping bag with what ever decorating tip you need and fill the bag!
Once you're done decorating all you have to clean is the muffin tin and spoons! Everything else can be thrown away! Happy Baking!
