Colorful swirled cupcakes. With as many ways as there are to decorate cupcakes, they can be really boring if you just slap some plain icing on them.

Colorful swirled cupcakes

I like to make them fun and interesting, and one of my favorite ways to do that is with colorful, swirled icing. Rather than mix food coloring into the icing, I use it to paint the decorator bag, creating a result so crazy and cool that you won’t believe you got it from such a simple technique.

You’ll be painting from 4 to 6 stripes of color for your icing, but you can repeat colors, so you really only need at least 2 different colors (up to 6 max). Paint the bags Okay, now for the actual technique! Now use the paint brush to paint stripes of color on the inside of the bag, starting at the tip and going up about 3-4 inches.

"It's a blessing in our culture," said Fleming, who's been assisting Native American students since 1968. Fleming, who tutors and advises every Native American student in the school district, said there were 75 graduates in 2010, but the 12th-grade class was smaller this year.
