You want to be “that” girl- you know, the one with the reputation for baking the prettiest cupcakes on the block, right?! Today I’ll show you how to frost cupcakes using this super easy method for creating an impressive two color frosting swirl.
I’ve used this method many times, and it will turn out great for your cupcakes too! There are a couple of ways to go about frosting cupcakes with color swirl, and this is one of the easiest.
The only cupcake decorating supplies you need for this frosting tutorial are a piping tip, like the Wilton 1M, and a piping bag or freezer bag. It’s also handy to have a large glass handy to help you fill the piping bag with your yummy homemade frosting.
Note: Don’t use a sandwich bag because they’re not sturdy enough to handle the pressure. The icing might blow the piping tip right through the bag.
With this quick Cupcake Decorating 101 video tutorial you’ll learn how to frost dozens of cupcakes in mere minutes, but everyone will think it took hours! Ready? Let’s do it!

My little girl loved shooting this video. If I knew how to put together quirky outtakes and edit vids like a pro, I’d have totally included the
funny naughty footage of her secretly licking cupcakes as I swirled frosting and chattered at the camera. Well, maybe next time.
Before you go, I have a question. What do you use to edit your videos online? Right now I’ve got Windows Movie Maker and the options are circa 1995 boring and extremely limited. Help a girl out and share your top picks for video editing in the comments below!!
