I don't do many cupcakes, hardly any at all. But, was wondering what tip is used to get swirl look, like you see mostly in the grocery stores.
I have used a 1m tip before. hope that helps
Ditto on the 1M... works like a charm!
Most grocery store swirls use a tip like the 1M from Wilton.
Thanks guys, Ill have to pick me one up next time I go to the supply store...
Have a wonderful day!
IM for sure! But if you want that kind of big round looking swirl ( like a bee hive look) 1A tip!
WOW, thanks ngfcake, that is exactly what I am looking for....
I have also seen some great cupcakes done with the 2D tip. In fact, a couple of times that I have e-mailed some people who have posted really nice cupcakes, asking what tip they have used, and they have replied with a "2D." I use a 1M quite often myself too.
Yes the 2D tip is another good one !
I love the 2D tip for cupcakes. I think it comes out cuter than the 1M, but both will work great. I would get both tips and try them, see which you like better. Have fun with it!
Which are some photo examples of the 2D cupcakes?
This picture has a good example. Most of the rose bouquets use the 2D tip. They start from the inside and work out. Of course, you can start from the outside and work in to get a cute swirl too.
That's a swirl?
Oh somebody please grab their webcam and show us how to do this one!
It's really easy and quick. You just start from the middle and swirl out in a circular motion, you don't even have to move your wrist.
That was the picture I was looking for!! Thanks Fiddlesticks, you always come through!
Your Welcome ! They are beautiful!
I'm going to have to give this 2D a chance! I've only ever used the 1M! Have to make goodies for preschool class this week... hmmm... can you say rose cuppies that I'm sure the little kiddies will make a huge mess with?!!
All the more fun to eat! Be warned, it does use a good bit of BC. Fine by me, cake is just the vessel for buttercream transportation. My DH on the other hand doesn't like it with the 2D tip since he isn't a huge fan if BC...silly boy doesn't know what he's missing!
I agree I bet you use double the icing at least!
Hey stsapph Im with ya, Forget the cake and just eat the icing LOL!!
My Hubby is the same way He would be happy If I left his plain !
Like I said...silly boys! lol...Then again, leaves more icing for us!! I'm sure the girls over in the laundry thread can think of ways to use it up!
Yes Im sure they can l Like maybe cover up the bare spots on choc man !
Yes yes... I think that shall work!
I like the looks of the 2D tip.....gonna have to try that one...
