4 Easy Steps to Filling a Pastry Bag

Over the past year, I’ve learned a few tricks that make baking cupcake a lot easier! This is a simple trick that makes filling a pastry bag with frosting so simple!

4 Easy Steps to Filling a Pastry Bag

  1. Place your pastry bag, tip down, in a tall cup. Fold edges of the bag over the side of the cup. Using a spatula, scoop frosting into bag.
  2. Using the spatula, push the frosting down into the bag, holding the cup for support.  Use the spatula to wipe off extra frosting, creating a smooth top.
  3. Fold up the sides of the pastry bag.
  4. Take the bag out of the cup and with your hands push the frosting down to the tip of the bag, trying to not let any air in the bag.  Twist the bag at the top of the frosting.
