Piping Bags “Ready to Decorate!”

I bet you didn’t know that I like to decorate cookies? Well, I do! LOL I like to make cookie dough and cut it into cute little shapes. I like to bake cookies because it makes my house smell amazing. I like to make icing. I like to look through my box of colors and find the perfect one that will make my cookies just the way I want them! I just don’t like how long it takes me to mix my colors and put it into my bags! I want my “Piping Bags Ready to Decorate” when I want! I don’t like to waste time by trying to find the right tips and couplers while the perfect color of icing that I just mixed dries before my very eyes. By the time I have baked cookies and colored icing, I just want to get on with the fun stuff! I want to decorate but I am still matching couplers and rings and snipping bags. Well, I have something that will save you a little time on decorating day. Your piping bags will be ready to decorate when you are.

I will show you a little trick I learned in this book. It is on page 100. This is one of my favorite “Make Ahead of Time Tips.” Assemble your bags days before you decorate!
