Use chocolate chips for an easy frosting. While your cake or brownies are still warm, put chocolate chips on let sit a few minutes to warm them. Once they begin to melt, spread with a table knife.

When my mother used to have friends over in the evening she wanted to serve a snack (cake and coffee) but most of them were elderly and would turn down the cake because of the frosting.

The problem was solved by using a round single layer cake. Buy 8-inch doilies, place a doily on top of the cake, and sprinkled it lightly with confectioner's sugar. Remove the doily and you have a lacy design on the cake without all of the icing.

Good idea, frosting is usually too sweet as we get older. Thanks

Here is a tip when having to prepare a quick powdered sugar frosting, whether your recipe is homemade or store bought. I take a spoonful of Jello powder and add it to the beginning mix.

When frosting a cake with a rubber spatula, first dip in some warm water then proceed to frost. It helps apply smoothly and and preventing little pieces of the cake from coming off. Reapply the dipping method as needed.

Lemon juice and some powdered sugar will make a nice glaze for a plain cake or quick bread. Just put a cup of sifted powdered sugar and a teaspoon of lemon juice in a bowl.

Sprinkle chocolate chips on your cake/cupcakes just a few minutes before they are done. Then just spread the chocolate across the top after they are melted and the cake is baked.

I want to learn to decorate cupcakes. Can I use store bought frosting instead of homemade. Seems like in all the videos I've watched, they are using homemade.

You can certainly use canned frosting to learn how to decorate cakes. However, for quality and taste (in my opinion) the best frosting, icing etc., is home made using fresh ingredients.

I bought canned icing, but after a while the icing started melting. I usually buy the rich and creamy or whipped one. What can I add or do for this not to happen again?
