I want to order this tip, but it seems it may only be available in Austrailia. Does anyone know if I can order it from a US retailer and it not, what would the shipping be from Austrailia?

lhayes1976 i have only just seen this post.

I have one and i just weighed it.
It weighs 3 grams (i am in Australia) so if 15 grams is equal to i/2 an ounce it weighs next to nothing.

Our postage over here is extremly resonable and as far as International postage is concerned....it should only cost you a few dollars by Air Mail.

Hope that helps.

What is this tip used for?

Bluehue Posted 20 Feb 2009 , 12:43am

I use it for piping Buttercream Swirls onto my Cupcakes.
When used on cupcakes it gives a large fluted swirl - if that makes sense.
I have just uploaded a pic into *my photots* to show you.
That was my very first attempt - icon_rolleyes.gificon_redface.gif

The pic isn't showing up just yet - might take a few more Minutes.

Bluehue, thanks....it makes a nice swirl.

BlueHue--In your photos you have fondant covered cupcakes--what cutter did you use to this? The fondant covers the cc perfectsly.

I was told shipping to the states would be $15.00...that was a few months ago when I inquired.

I thought that was pretty high for something so small.

I also asked about purchasing 2 tips...it was still $15.00, so I would definitely get 2.

It's the tip boonenati uses for her beautiful swirls. I can't remember where she mentions it, Flickr - here - or on her site, but I wanted it after reading about it.

lhayes1976....
I have copied and posted a link below for you.
Home page --> then Baking --> then click on Cookie Cutters.

If you scroll down you will set a set of round cookie cutters ($22.95) and under that a set of round CRINKLE cookie cutters ($31.95).
The Crinkle ones are the ones i used for the cupcakes that you see in my photos.
I just take out my cutters and get the closest match to the top of my cakes - cut out the right size - let sit for a minute or two to firm up then lift them with a long spatular knife and place them ontop of my little cakes.

Hope this helps.
