Tri-Color Swirl Cupcake Frosting
The perfect topping for classic cupcakes, this beautifully swirled frosting is as pretty as it is sweet. Add as much or as little to each cupcake as you like – and experiment with the frosting's design.
With a few basic icing tools, you can create a multicolored swirl on your cupcakes - leaving your guests wondering how you did it!”
- Vanilla, chocolate and strawberry frosting
- 4 large disposable bags (to be used as piping bags)
- 1 large star tip (to top piping bags)
- 1 large apple peeled and diced (optional)
Fill one of the piping bags approximately 1/3 full with vanilla frosting, one approximately 1/3 full with strawberry frosting and one approximately 1/3 full with chocolate frosting. Twist the top of each bag to prevent the frosting from coming out.
Place all three bags into the fourth piping bag. Try to line the three bags up as evenly as possible.
Fit the fourth bag with the star tip. Twist it closed and do few test swirls until all three colors come out evenly.
Starting on the outside of each cupcake, pipe the frosting in a circular motion using even pressure. Build the frosting up until you reach the center, then release the pressure on the bag and pull up to create a finishing loop.
