Hello
Could someone please tell me what kind or size tip do you use to make your
icing on a cupcake look like it and ice cream cone. (looks like a DQ ice cream)
Couldnt figure out how to say it...

I am attaching a fellow CCers cupcake to explain what I mean...

Thank you so much for you help

I just cut some of the tip off of the bag until it's the size I want then you don't have to buy an extra tip.

I would not use a tip just the bag hole with very soft frosting. HTH

Ahuvas has it right . The ateco tip is about 3/4" across. Saw it on another post by someone who was definitive. If you just cut a hole, it won't be round.

I think you can use a large round tip or those couplers that don't have the side notch. like this one:

Of course you have to make the hole round, please don't think one cut to your bag is enough, keep using your sissors until you get the size and the shape you need, go little by little that way you don't waste your bag! usaribbon.gif
