Icing Cupcakes

Tonight I decided to make some cupcakes with Austin. He has been talking about them since we ordered his cake last Thursday. Austin also loves turtles so I thought I would make the icing green. I was just using a cake mix and icing out of a tub and no icing stuff at all. I thought I would try using a plastic ziplock bag.

I first added 3 drops of green food coloring in the bag and then scooped the icing in the bag. I then squeezed the icing around the bag to get it all mixed with the coloring. Austin loved helping with this part. Once I finished I put it in the fridge for about 5 mins.

After I took it out of the fridge I pushed all the icing down to one corner of the bag. I then cut a small hole in the corner of bag and used it just like the icing bags you buy. I have to admit this was super easy and way less messy then icing cupcakes with a spatula or knife.

I think this will be my knew way of icing a cupcake. Super easy, less messy, and almost always have plastic bags on hand.
