Pillsbury Easy Frost No Fuss Frosting Review!

Okay, when I heard Pillsbury had created a frosting in an aerosol can with a five star tip, I HAD to try it. The new Easy Frost frosting comes in three great flavors: Decadent Chocolate Fudge, Vanilla Dream and Velvety Cream Cheese. I love making cakes and cupcakes but I have issues. Basically I can't frost anything without making a mess. My cakes comes out looking freakishly demented and my cupcakes always taste good but look as if they were frosted while I was jumping on a trampoline. I kid you not.

But now I can frost my goodies easily and quickly with this new Pillsbury Easy Frost Frosting. To test it out, I decided to make some cupcakes for Tom's co-workers. It's been cold and gloomy and they deserve a little treat and what better treat than cupcakes, right?

Let me tell you that it was easy peasy to frost these cupcakes. I tried different styles with the tips and if I do say so myself, they look pretty darn good.

I am even submitting one of these photos in the Pillsbury Easy Frost No Fuss Frosting Challenge. From now to February 19th (so hurry) dessert lovers can enter an original photo of a treat they created with this new frosting to win prizes. The Grand Prize Winner will receive a $10,000 cash prize and a year's supply of No-Fuss Frosting!

  1. Thanks for posting this- I was looking for the different ways pillsbury easy frost can frost cupcakes (not a professional video/pic, but one from us regular people lol). I am throwing a party for my son at a park (a week from now is the hot sun of July). I decided to bake the cupcakes and frost them there- but I wasn't sure which method would look the most "professional". I think I'll use the swirl method, but if it doesn't come out fluffy the star method looks like a good alternative. Your pics really helped me out- thanks again!
