Hey Everyone =)
I was wondering if someone might know how to achieve this look?? Is it just painting the inside of your pastry bag??
Thanx for looking!!
HAPPY FRIDAY!

This is so pretty, I wonder if you get that by making stripes in the sides of the bag?

I am going to guess that the red & blue are piped on separately, using a smaller tip. It almost looks like piping gel......

They look yummy though.

I saw a something where they put 2 shades in separate bags, then put both pastry bags into another bag fitted with the coupler and tip. Then when it was piped, it came out with the striped effect. I can't remember where I saw it, I'm thinking www.marthastewart.com

I thought it was stripes on the inside too alika .. but the more I looked at it the more it looked like the piping gel that cakes22 said .. hmmmm
Ive never heard of the way you said TNT .. Im gonna have to try and see if I can find that on MS or somewhere ... thats sounds pretty useful!

But I am stumped ... I think they are sooooo pretty, I wanna try them for July 4th - so that gives me a little time to play with some diff. ideas!

Let us know how it turns out. I know that what I saw was cupcakes striped to look like soft serve ice cream cones and the cupcakes were baked in the cones.

You can do that method using the frosting plug technique (there is a sticky at the top of this forum on how to),

The blue & red look more like gel, like a sparkle gel. Wiltons sells them and you can put a tip on the end of the tube and pipe it directly.

I have done the two tone technique too, but I think with this design it is so flawless, that it would take precision to pipe it, and red & blue being strong colours and the white being , well white, it would be a PITA to do that way. JMHO. icon_biggrin.gif

cboyer - I thought it was just "too" perfect to have done it that way - Ive tried that b4 - yes it was pretty, but not every cc was uniform (if that makes sense!)

And those dual bags are super cool! I love them!! And at $9 for 10 bags - I sure hope they are re-useable! However, Im not sure - maybe?! I'll have to invest and maybe try them out!!

Thanx for posting those links! gives me something to think about! BTW: Welcome to CC!!!

TNT: I sure will! And thanx for letting me know more about what you saw - that will make it easier for huntin' them down!! And Welcome to CC also!!!

Cakes22 - I really tried to enlarge that pic here and was able to see it a little better than the size here in the forum - and it really does look like the sparkly gel - Im in agreemnet that the precision it would take to do it the "plug" way would probably drive me MAD!!!
Ithink your right about doing it with the gels - thats probably what Im gonna try first - and look for what TNT said on the MS site and see how they did theirs ... Wish me luck!

And thanks everyone for letting me pick your brains today!! =}
