Hi all, i was just wondering, what you like best or works best, when say your doing a swirl on a cupcake do you like putting each on one side of the bag didn't work well for me or using two bag inside on bag? and do you use less of one color. so it just look's tipped, and i tried using my spatula with the color down the side and i'm guessing i didn't put enough down the side, how thick do you put the gel on. thanks all

I loaded one bag/one tip with two colors of icing and wished I had put a little more white. But, it worked really nice.

I know there are better ways out there, like using sleeves and putting two colour sleeves into one bag, so they feed into the same tip. However, I am too lazy for that! I just use a long thin spatula to put two (or more) colours into one bag. It always looks pretty, even if it's not quite the way I pictured it.

This is a great little technique for 2 tone color:

I usually do it this way, it's super easy and works for me every time.
