Tie Dye Frosting

Mom discovered a new piping technique, so I decided to test it out!What you're supposed to do is take a little bit of gel food coloring, and 'paint' it onto the inside of the piping bag. You can see the tutorial that mom found here: the tutorial, she gets a really pretty two-toned frosting, where just the edges of the frosting are a different color. Mine are...not like that. Obviously! The first batch, I put too much coloring in and it just made the frosting bright pink. The second batch, I put in too little and it literally added no color. The third batch, I still put a little too much, but not as much. It created a weird tye die effect! Definitely try this some day if you're bored. But it takes a lot to perfect, I'm sure. Mom likes these more than I do. Tie Dye Frosting Recipe

  • 1-2 lbs buttercream frosting, white

  • Gel food coloring, any color

  • A small paint brush


  • Snip off the end of a piping bag and fit it with the tip of your choice (preferably something with ridges)

  • Use a paint brush to brush some food coloring onto the inside of the piping bag. Use the link above to watch the official tutorial!

  • Pipe onto the cupcakes!
