I can't open the picture either. I had this same problem the other day. Never did figure out what was wrong ...

I'm not sure if this is what you're thinking of but maybe a star tip? There are many different ones to chose from depending on the size that you want. Good luck and welcome to CC! thumbs_up.gif

the pic appears to be too small to upload to my photo gallery.
this is very similar: http://www.flickr.com/photos/santos/49636810/

but i'd like mine to have a base that could cover the surface of a mini cupcake. does that make sense? it's a spike that sort of looks like a hershey kiss. i'll keep looking for a closer photo.

thanks for the warm welcome!

I'd guess it's a star tip. Maybe one of the larger ones.

yes! it seems to be a star tip. thanks. do you know what size would cover the surface of a mini cupcake? also, do you know the difference between a "french" star tip and regular star tip?

thanks!!
