Ok newb question! So how would I get a two toned look for frosting a cupcake? And also is this look too old school or could it be cool? Pics would be super helpful if you have it. Thanks a bil!

you simply either add two frosing to the bag or you can use a paint brush and brush coloring in stipes along the inside of the bag then add your icing. Then pipe away.

antasia did these cupcakes.. using the different icing.. http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1794230

In my photos I have a pink and black cake that has mixed flowers done this way.

I love making two tone cupcakes. You can check mine out in my pics. I tried many different techniques and even bought the special two toned bags. What I found to work the best was to fill two ziplock sandwich bags with the different colors and then place those in an 16" bag to pipe. Works great!

I use two small disposable piping bags, one filled with each color, snip the ends, and drop them into a 16" piping bag fitted with tip 1M.

It's not too old-school for most people...cupcakes with the swirl are kind of retro already, so the two colors just add to the fun.
