How to Use Canned Frosting on Cookies

Save

Using canned frosting is an easy and affordable way to decorate cookies. Because it has been sealed in a can, however, the icing can sometimes be too stiff to work with and may result in crumbled cookies. By quickly kneading the icing in a pastry bag, canned icing can become pliable and easy to work when decorating cookies.

Things You'll Need

  • Canned frosting
  • Zip-lock storage bags
  • Tall glass
  • Scissors
  • Cookies

Preparing Icing

  • Place zip-lock bag with one corner down in a tall glass. Roll the opening of the bag around the brim of the glass.

  • Place 3 to 4 tbsp. of canned icing in a zip-lock bag as close to the corner of the bag as possible.

  • Remove the bag from the glass and let all the air out before sealing the glass.

  • Massage and knead the icing with your hands so it becomes soft and workable.

  • Snip off a diagonal section from the lower corner of the bag with scissors.

  • Squeeze the frosting out of the bag and onto the cookies in a slow and steady motion.
