Does anyone have any thoughts about what tip was used for these cupcakes? She says it was a 1M closed star, but I can't find any such thing. And I LOVE how these look!

Is this it?

Looks like a closed star tip to me, since the ridges are really narrow.

Thanks for the help with the link. Any suggestions as to which closed star tip to try?

Here's a link showing the differences....

I assume the larger the tip, the fuller the cupcake will look.

A 1M tip comes in the Wilton Cupcake kit that has several tips included...

You can also just buy the 1m individually if you have a cake supply store near you.

It looks like A 2D Narrow Star Wilton Tip, I know Micheals and Jo-Anns around me sells them.

I was wondering if it was a 2D... I know if you spiral from the middle out with one, it makes a gorgeous rose, so maybe it comes out like this if you spiral from the outside in? Guess I'll have to experiment and try it out. Thanks!

Yes I have a 2D and if you go from the outside in it will give you that look. I also know that when I used buttercreams that were softer, (non-crusting) it kind of came out stringy like grass, weird I know but just wanted to give you a heads up.

I use a 1M and 2D on all my cupcakes, they come out pretty and it is so fast!

That definitely looks like 2D. That's my favorite tip for cupcakes. I think it's prettier than the 1M. I bought both of mine at Michael's.

If it is indeed the picture that Kitagrl posted then here is a quote from that article.

(in the picture I used a Wilton 1M closed star decorating tip)

Yes, the article said it was a 1M, but it really looks more like a 2D.
