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..

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.
