No more frustrating frosting. We've got an easier way to frost your desserts, while making them look better, too.

You Never Knew Canned Frosting Could Do THIS!

Take a can of your favorite store-bought frosting in any color and flavor.

Scrape it all into a mixing bowl. Microwave until smooth and melted.

Cake Pops

Dip cake pops in colored frosting to coat them, then let them dry on parchment paper. Bonus points if you roll them in some sprinkles, too!

Marble Brownies

Bake brownies, then microwave chocolate and vanilla frosting. Pour chocolate frosting on top and spread to cover all the brownies. Drizzle vanilla frosting in a zig-zag formation, then use a toothpick to swirl frosting on the brownies. The result? A gorgeous marbled effect.

Layer Cakes

Easily frost layer cakes by using a spoon to spread the melted frosting of your choice in between layers and on top.

Like the video of pouring or spooning melted store bought frosting on cake. Wondering if one brand is better than others? Also is it best to refrigerate the cake first prior to pouring/spooning melted frosting on the cake? thanks for video
