So I have been asked by my a client to do cupcakes with two separate icing colors combined. By this I mean she wants black and white to be combined in one so it looks like half the icing is black and the other is white but in one smooth icing twirl. I know I have seen divided pastry bags in the past, but can't find them now. Any ideas or suggestion...??????? PLEASE. I have posted quite a bit lately and haven't been getting any help...

I think THIS is what you are talking about?? You can also wrap the frostings in saran wrap and cup the tip before putting it in the pastry bag together icon_smile.gif

Now I have never tried this but maybe you could give it a go. I seen a post out in the forums once that I read how someone (sorry can't remember who) put the icing in swran wrap and rolled it up...then put the two colours that were wrapped in swran into a piping bag with her coupler and tip. She also had pics to show how she did it. It looked like a really cool and cheap way to do it. If you look for it maybe you can find it. Good luck and happy caking. icon_biggrin.gif

i just fill one side of bag with white and the other with black. with a little practice you can get it pretty even. works for me. good luck!

You can double-load a regular bag.

You can put one color into the bag smooshing it one side and then load in the other being careful not to mix them. You need to load equal amounts of both colors and you might have to squeeze out some until the 2 colors are coming out evenly from the tip. I do this for my hydrangea flowers--not overly concerned if the colors blend a little.

OR

You can check out the "sticky" about make frosting plugs--frosting wrapped into clear wrap sausages. Make a sausage of each color, drop both into a bag and your are good to go.

I agree. "Frosting plugs" of the same size are the way to go.

I fill two disposable bags with the different frostings and then put them both into a larger cloth bag, side by side. it works great. You just have to remember to squeeze evenly. icon_smile.gif
