What is the best way to get a two-toned swirl to top your cupcake, with your icing? I thought just putting one color in one side of the bag, and the other color in the other side of the bag. One is whipped chocolate ganache and the other is peanut butter filling, and since the colors are so drastically different I thought that would look really cool swirled together.

Am I way off the mark on how to do this? Here is a picture of what I want to do, can anyone give some advice?

use this method with two plugs inserted into your pastry bag.

so to be straight forward I have not done this before.

But somewhere on here I read how you can do plugs and some put two plugs in thier piping bag. I think this would work for you. I will try to find you the link. Cause that would make more sense.

You can also just fill two smaller disposable pastry bags and put them side-by-side into a larger bag. Much simpler than the plugs when you need to pipe a large amount (if you're doing 100 cupcakes, doing plastic wrap plugs over and over would get a little time-consuming)

Thank you ALL so much guys! I think I will take two disposable piping bags and stick them inside my larger bag, since I have a TON of these things to do.

It they are different consistencies, it's going to be hard to get them to come out at the same speed. Make sure your peanutbutter is as thin as the ganache!
