Who doesn't love a good deal?

I had a half price coupon at Michael's last week, so I bought myself a set of cake decorating tips and bags. 4 tips, 2 couplings, 8 disposable bags and 5 colors for $4!

I started by just making up a batch of yellow cupcakes for my hubby to take to work.

I also doubled my favorite Cream Cheese frosting recipe when I made pumpkin bars, so I decided to try and make it chocolate! SO GOOD! I added one melted square of unsweetened baking chocolate and 3 TBS of cocoa powder. I also added about 1 cup of powdered sugar to make it thick enough to pipe.

I used a star tip and filled my piping bag with the frosting.

Nothing fancy, just playing around with frosting!

And for Mark to take to work- topped with my adorable Fall Leaf sprinkles from the Calico Bean!


  1. They look great! Yellow cake is my favorite. Are these your first set of piping bags and tips? It is so much fun using them, isn't it?

  2. Yep- my first set :) I think I'm going to enjoy them a lot!
