How to Tie-Dye Frosting for Cupcakes!

FeaturedContest Winner
Tie dyed frosting is any kids' dream! And since I have five kids of my own, I figured it was high time I found a way to tie dye frosting for cupcakes. Follow along for the easy tutorial!

Step 1:

Picture of
Lay out a piece of plastic wrap and gather the colors you want to use for the frosting stripes. Don’t forget a little paintbrush - the cheap watercolor ones work great.

I did this same concept this weekend with cupcakes but with only one color. The problems I ran into was when reaching into the piping bag to brush in my colors, the mess and getting the color in evenly. I love the way you did it though. Will definitely be trying this as it looks much simpler and less messy than the way I did it!!!

That is REALLY COOL. Also this looks like a great way to get frosting into the bag relatively mess free! 2 thumbs up!
That is amazing! I have wondered how frosting could ever look like this! I feel like I have just learned a wonderful baking secret :D
+1 on that!
Whoa! Have you tried this method with white chocolate, too?

These look STUNNING! I love the photo! But - I'd be afraid my mouth and tongue would be dyed also! :) When I get food coloring on my hands it seems hard to get off.....
