Whether you bake cookies from scratch or prefer to create cookie magic from a mix, this frosting hack is a time saver, a life saver and a total cookie saver! There’s nothing worse than baking the perfect batch of sugar cookies or cookie cutouts and having the final frosting touch fail.
This hack was tested by our professional kitchen experts, so it’s the real deal—you don’t have the time (or the patience) for anything less. To use this frosting guide, start with a 16-ounce can of Betty Crocker™ Vanilla Rich & Creamy Frosting and a box of Betty Crocker™ Classic Gel Food Coloring. Each shade and color of frosting was created using a half container of frosting and the recommended teaspoon of food coloring.
½ container of vanilla frosting + recommended teaspoon amount of food coloring = a frosting color that turns out just the way you want it to!
