Kraft Kitchens Tips

Special Extra
Fit pastry bag with desired decorating tip. Spoon enough COOL WHIP mixture into prepared bag to fill about halfway. Use to pipe COOL WHIP mixture onto cupcakes, refilling bag with remaining COOL WHIP mixture when necessary. Or if you don't have a pastry bag, you can use a resealable plastic bag instead. Spoon COOL WHIP mixture into bag, then cut piece off one bottom corner of bag before using to frost cupcakes.
How to Store
Keep frosted cupcakes refrigerated.
How to Easily Fill Muffin Cups
Filling muffin cups with muffin or cupcake batter can be a messy task. Make it neat and easy by using an ice cream scoop to fill the cups. This also ensures that an equal amount of batter is portioned into each muffin cup.
