Tip of the Week: Make Cookie Decorating Mess-Free With This Simple Trick

So you’ve baked the cookies, whipped up the frosting, and assembled sprinkles in every color of the rainbow. That means one thing: It’s decorating time.

As any baker can tell you, more often than not, the decorating phase is the messiest part of making holiday cookies—especially if kids get involved. This year, don’t let an explosion of frosting and thousands of sticky fingerprints ruin your cookie decorating fun. Just take advantage of this genius hack to make cleanup a breeze.

Icing cookies

Instead of piping bags or frosting knives, use easy-to-handle condiment bottles to frost your cookies. Kids of all ages will be able to easily control the flow, and you’ll minimize the amount of frosting fallout that ends up on the counter, table, floor, and so on.

The fact that every cookie comes out looking impeccable is just an added bonus!
