Looking for a fun and easy way to jazz up your Labor Day? This frosting technique that I added on top of classic Rice Krispy Treats is the perfect thing. You can even add it on top of your favorite cupcake recipe!
I started with a simple butter cream recipe (butter, confectioners sugar, milk, and vanilla bean paste) and then divided the frosting into three different bowls and added food color until I was happy with the color.
Next, using a technique I’ve seen on countless other blogs, I put each color in their own piping bag and then inserted all three piping bags into one bag that contained my chosen tip.
Last, you just pipe the frosting onto your selected treat as your normally would. It’s that easy and the results will having everyone at your gathering wondering how you did it!
What’s great about this frosting technique is that you can pick and choose your colors depending on the time of year (red, green, and white for Christmas?), the color scheme of a party, or just whatever you are in the mood for.

what a cool technique! i’ll definitely try it…i’ve been thinking about the cupcake i’ll bake for labor day weekend, and might use this 🙂
Thanks! It was so easy, you should totally do it! If you do, we’d love to see photos!
hmmm so that technique really does work. Good to know. I’ve been meaning to try it to but haven’t done it yet. So many cupcakes to try 🙂
Yep! It works really well! And I know what you mean…. I really want to explore cupcake toppers with fondant texture mats, but I don’t think I’ll be able to get to it this month. 😦
The technique sure does work as I use it myself. Just make sure you don’t fill up the bags too much 😉
I’m loving the red, white and blue
Haha! Yes! Great tip! That was something I tried to make sure I didn’t do. 🙂
So that’s how people get multi-colored frosting. I was always wondering. Thanks for the tip!
Yep! It’s so much easier than I thought it would be too! If you try it out, let us know!
