I did a search but most of the postings say, "Post no longer exists for this topic." I'm wondering what tip people are using for the buttercream bubbles. Or how to go about making them in general. Any help is much appreciated!! Thanks. Does a tutorial exist?

I think some people roll them into little fondant balls of all different sizes. If I were going to pipe them, I'd use the round tips in different sizes say - 12, 10, 8, 6.

Like CakeRN said. You don't pull the tip off till your bubble is nice and roundand the size you want. Then go back after a few minutes and tap any tips down with a damp flat brush.

Awesome! Thank you all!!! Do I paint with luster dust or pearl dust to get the shiny look? What color is best? Thanks so much for all of the help!

The "Post no longer exists for this topic." error happens when you try to access a corrupted thread.
The first part of the thread is usually there, but we had a problem that messed up the last page or two of a whole bunch of threads.

I used tip 12 on my my little pony cake to make clouds (clouds on one cake could be bubbles on another! icon_wink.gif ). Just squeeze to desired size and release. If you get a 'tail' just push it in gently with a paintbrush or your finger. BTW, mine were done with buttercream, not royal since I piped them directly on the cake... Good Luck!
