Chef Ch-Ch-Chayla is here to walk you through one of her very favorite decorating techniques of all time: How to Make a Multi Colored Icing Bag! This is a commonly asked question to us at My Make Studio and it's one of our favorite things to teach. You can follow along with Chayla's directions for making a rainbow icing bag or you can do as few as 2 colors. 

Using the 6 colors of the rainbow make for a beautiful rainbow colored bag so you can't go wrong with decorating this way. Other common multi colored bags include:

  • Red + Yellow + Orange = Fire colored bag. Use a Leaf tip to create flames!
  • Light Blue + Dark Blue + White = Ocean colored bag. Use a basket weave tip to create waves!
  • Green + Bright Green = Grass colored bag. Use a Grass tip to make a great lawn on your cupcake!
  • Hot Pink + Light Pink + White = Feathers colored bag. Use any combination of 2 shades + white to create feathers for a bird. Use a Leaf tip to create feathers!

Here are the step by step instructions for creating a Multi Colored Icing Bag:

  1. Choose 2-6 colors of icing.
  2. Lay a sheet of saran wrap out on a flat surface. 
  3. Pipe stripes of icing about 8 inches long in the center of your saran wrap. You want the stripes to be touching. They can be as thick or thin as you want.
  4. Continue piping stripes of icing out until you have about 6-10 inches of icing in width.
  5. Pick up one end of your saran wrap and roll it over to the other end so your icing looks like a stuffed sausage.
  6. Pick up the left and right sides of your saran wrap and twist them tight so your icing is now fully sealed on all sides.
  7. Put a coupler into an icing bag (optional). Cut the end off your rainbow sausage bag.
  8. Put your rainbow sausage bag into your icing bag and twist the outside closed so icing does not pop out the top.
  9. Pipe away!
