Expert Tips

Roll dough to an even thickness by rolling over two wooden dowels or rulers. Use dowels or rulers in the desired thickness, and place them on opposite sides of the dough.

For easy decorating, place frosting in a resealable food-storage plastic bag, snip off a small corner of the bag and squeeze to frost.
