Does anyone know how to achieve the swirl that Georgetown cupcakes has on their White Chocolate swirl cupcakes? Every time I try to swirl colors in one bag they just blend together.

Do you have a picture so we can see what style you mean?

There are a few ways. If you just want the tip of the frosting another color, you paint a line with food color inside your piping bag and then put in the frosting and pipe.

If you want the same amount of both colors (like when you go get a swirly vanilla and chocolate soft ice cream), you could try doing these plugs with icing and putting both of them into your bag.

There are also bags and couplers that come divided in two. See the Striper Bag Inserts? You could do that with the tutorial above and you don't have to buy any special bags.

I'm on my iPad. See if you can find them at this link. There is either a double bag or you can just get inserts to use with your bags. I went on amazon once to order one of those very strong orange silicone pastry bag and I got a double chamber by accident.

Do look at amazon for best price.

I ordered this by accident, and it's a striper bag, too.

I checked this bag out on Pastry Chef and was going to order it until I calculated the shipping. $11.05 to ship a pastry bag, are they out of their frickin minds?

Most of the time I go there to check whats available to the world, but buy somewhere else. They do have big pictures and good explanations. I keep a spreadsheet with the main suppliers and calculate where it's more convenient and cheaper. I got the orange one at amazon when I was placing a huge order so my shipping is free.
