Recycle Plastic Frosting Containers

Post by littlemiss63 » Sat Jan 19, 2019 1:41 pm

If you haven't started making your own homemade frostings you really should, the ones that I have made are better than the ones purchased in the store. However, if you are still buying them save the plastic frosting cans to store your own frosting in. It's been a couple years since I bought a store frosting, but the containers that I saved and have used are still in great shape. I like to have homemade frosting on hand for a small snack cake so that is what I store mine in in the fridge.

I love the chocolate one from the back of the Hersey's Chocolate Container and it's posted in the recipes section. Try it, think you will agree that it's excellent and it saves you money.

Well, I try to avoid frosting cakes and cupcakes, LOL! A little powdered sugar on top works well. But I will check out that recipe ...

But, I do keep those containers ... found out they are excellent for packing things like canned fruit (or anything that would make a mess if it leaked) for work lunches, or for storing leftovers in the fridge.

Great idea Littlemiss. I have always made my own frosting, the ones in the plastic containers taste a bit off to me.

Next up in my frugalness is making my own icing for cakes. We don't have many cakes during the year but I've got a Kitchen Aid and what the heck and try it.
