To quickly frost cupcakes, place frosting in a bowl. The frosting should be a soft, spreadable consistency. If it is too stiff, add milk a teaspoon at a time until it reaches desired consistency. Dip top of cupcake into the frosting, twist slightly and lift up. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

Don't have the time to make homemade frosting? Mix a can of store-bought frosting (any flavor) with an 8-ounce container of whipped topping. The result is so soft, creamy and easy to spread that everyone will think you made traditional cooked 7-minute frosting. —Sheila S., Eleanor, West Virginia
This sweet creamy frosting made with real butter is easy to blend together and holds its shape nicely when used to decorate a special layer cake. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

Tint white frosting with liquid, gel or paste food coloring. Liquid will give a pastel color; gel and paste give a deeper color. Add a little at a time, stir in and check the color. You can always add more, but it's hard to lighten the color. The color generally darkens as the frosting dries. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
