Lay a piece of plastic wrap down horizontally. Take a gel color mixed with a tiny bit of water to dilute a little and dip food safe paint brush in. Paint thin strips horizontally about 6 inches long.
Layer on about a cup of white buttercream over top of the color stripes. Fold over hot dog style to create a pouch or a buttercream burrito is what I like to call it. Twist up your ends and coil up one side so the buttercream doesn’t come out.
With the uncoiled end, feed it though your coupler. Cut the end of your piping bag about 1 inch and drop in the end with attached coupler straight down into the piping bag.
Pull the plastic through and cut off remaining. Attach tip and match the strip up with the end you want the color to come out of. Begin to pipe. The white buttercream will pull the color through. You will have to give it a big squeeze to start to see the colors come through. If you want the color to come through in the tips of the petals, have the color line up with the skinny end of the tip. For the inside of the petals, have the color lined up with the wide end of the tip. Begin to pipe, adjusting the tip for color flow.
