If you saw last week's post you'll know that Meg and I have been playing around with different piping techniques. Last week we showed the "rose" piping technique. This week I want to show you the 2 colour swirl.
We were inspired to give this a whirl after being given the task of creating Tinkerbell cupcakes for a gorgeous 4 year old girl's birthday party (thanks Katie, we absolutely loved doing these).
As you can see in the pic we went with a green and purple 2 colour swirl. We were so thrilled with how these turned out we made a little YouTube tutorial (just for something different). It gives you the basic idea on how to:
- Get the two colours into the piping bag (in a simple way)
- Gives you a look at the piping technique we use
- Shows you what to do if the colours don't quite go in the piping bag how you want them to
Have a looky-see at our tutorial on here:

We'd love to hear about your experiences with doing the multi-colour frosting swirl so comment away on here or on the vid, and feel free to post some photos on our facey or to our email:
Once again, peace and love from the 22do kitchen,
