This Simple Trick That Makes Store-Bought Frosting Taste Homemade

Don’t have time to make frosting from scratch? This viral video reveals the secret to making store-bought frosting *that* much better.

Sometimes when we get the urge to bake, we don’t have the right ingredients at our disposal. (I can’t even begin to explain how frustrating it is to want to make lemon bread when you don’t have a single lemon in the house!) In cases like this, we just need to use our noggin and find a way to make our pantry staples work.

That’s why we love this baking hack so much. Just because we don’t have the ingredients for homemade frosting doesn’t mean we can’t still put our own personal touch on store-bought frosting.
