HOW DO YOU FROST CUPCAKES WITH MULTIPLE COLORS OF FROSTING?
There are two ways that you can make multi-colored frosting. One way is scooping one of the colors of frosting into a pastry bag and then using the back of a spoon to smooth the frosting into one side of the bag and then repeating on the opposite side of the bag with the other color. Or you can purchase icing duet bags!
