I am making banana cupcakes for my son's birthday party and I will frost with chocolate frosting. I wanted to pipe on 1-2 bananas on the top with buttercream. Is there a good tip for doing that? At first I thought it would be easy, but then realized that bananas have thicker and thiner parts.

Any advise on tips or techniques? Thanks.

You could use the round tip to squeeze the middle part and then a smaller tip to add the brown tip and bottom. I would add a speck or two of the brown on the yellow.

Thanks, the Wilton technique was exactly what I needed. Need to go out and get a #8 tip, but, that shouldn't be a problem. They even give what color yellow to get. thumbs_up.gif

I have to say I have not ventured into fondant yet...still a bit intimidated. I will stick to piping bc for a while.
