C# Convert String to Base64 and Base64 to String

Here are two functions that I keep using when converting String to Base64 and vice versa!

Convert String to Base64:

static public string StringToBase64(string toEncode)
{
  byte[] toEncodeAsBytes = ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetBytes(toEncode);
  string returnValue = Convert.ToBase64String(toEncodeAsBytes);
  return returnValue;
}

and convert Base64 to String:

static public string Base64ToString(string encodedData)
{
  byte[] encodedDataAsBytes = Convert.FromBase64String(encodedData);
  string returnValue = ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetString(encodedDataAsBytes);
  return returnValue;
}
