They look hard, but they’re really not. To swirl the frosting, just fill in half the piping bag with yellow frosting and the other half with white frosting. Squeeze the bag until the air bubbles are out and both colors come out evenly – it doesn’t have to be perfect! To frost cupcakes start by swirling in a circle and then add on top of that in a swirling motion and voilá!
