Sure! Just fill the one bag with both colors of icing, making sure the one color is on one side and the other on the other side.

OR if one is a darker color, you can just make a big thick stripe of the darker icing down one side of the bag, and put white or the lighter color in to fill the rest. I did that for "zebra" striped cupcakes recently in my photos.

That's exactly how I do it too. If you need visuals you can go onto youtube and check out SeriousCakes videos, I believe its her pharmacy cake and cuppies video that show exactly how she does it.

There are disposable plastic decorating bags you can get that are split in the middle, so you fill each side easier with the different colors.

I've also heard that you can wrap one color of icing in plastic wrap with one open end, insert into piping bag - do the same with the other color and place beside the first in the piping bag. Both colors should flow out together for a two color swirl.

This is exactly the method I used to do three colors on my tie dyed cupcakes. I think there is a tutorial at the top of this forum how to make the icing plugs with plastic. It's super easy and make cleanup a snap!
