A[IMG ALT="CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality"][/IMG] How do I swirl my frosting like this. Most of the tutorials I seen donit so half the frosting is one color and on the other side is the other color. I really want mine to swirl together like this.

there are bags that are seemed down the middle to get this effect.  Also, You can add half frosting on one side and half on the other to achieve the same look.

take three piping bags, fill one with one color half way, fill another with another color half way, then you slide both of those into a single bag with a coupler and trim the inside bags to the top of the coupler. add tip, and there you have it ;)

AThanks for the help. I was going to do that before but I was afraid of getting the half and half. :)

AYou can paint stripes of color in your bag before filling also. But that's only good if you are doing a small amount of piping (a few roses or a cake border).

AIt's for display cupcakes. I'm only doing a half dozen. I'll try it both ways and post my results.

 Cupcake looks amazing! I was wondering if i would put the  two frosting  side by side in the bag to get this effect?

A[IMG ALT=""][/IMG] This is what I got when I put 3 stripes down the side of my bag. I didn't have time to try the other technique yesterday.

they look very nice!   Striping the bag gives a lighter effect.  If you want it more like the picture, try the side by side color in the bag.

AIs there a different way to twist your hand to make it swirl, then? Every time I put the two colors in the bag side by side, I get the half and half effect, too

The post by JoanneK on the first page talks about multicolor in the same bag.
