How to Make a DIY Pastry Bag

Here's an easy way to make a homemade pastry/piping bag out of something you probably already have in your kitchen! Perfect for all your frosting, filling, and piping needs.


If you don’t have a pastry bag, cut off a corner of a resealable freezer bag and place a pastry tip in the corner. Fill the bag with icing and squeeze it into the tip—instant pastry bag! If you're decorating with more than one tip or color of icing, just use two bags. It makes cleanup a snap.
