A ziplock bag makes a great disposable piping tube for decorating cakes and cupcakes, or making specialty-shaped cookies. Fill the bag about halfway with icing or dough, and twist the top to force the sweet treat into one corner. Snip off the edge of this corner, and then pipe away using gentle, steady pressure. You also can use a ziplock bag to knead bread dough so your fingers don’t get sticky, or as a DIY funnel to cleanly transfer salt, water, rice, and more from one container to another.
