so i am making my apple spice cupcakes for our church potluck i am doing 2 dozen 

i know how to do  a two toned using three piping bags two with the frosting add to the third bag and then pipe


but this time instead of doing my caramel marshmallow vanilla buttercream i wanted to tint them the colors of candy corn and pipe onto cupcake. my plan was to use the large star tip to pipe 1m


i saw somewhere online where the colors were layered in the bag side by side. does that work does anyone have any better methods 


because i am doing three tones i am making an extra batch of my buttercream recipe


its 2 sticks butter unsalted softened 

1 7oz jar marshmallow fluff


caramel sauce i dump a good amount from the jar enought to give it the flavor but not overpower

vanilla extract

and 3 cups of powder sugar


with a single color i can get 24 piped but with three tones i would need extra

AI can't remember what people call it, but you wrap each batch of buttercream in cling film separately and drop them side by side into a piping bag....somebody must have their brain up and functioning and know what to search for!

You could fill a piping bag with the three separate colours, just use a big bag and rotate it in your hands to fill.

Probably easier with the cling sausages though....
