I am wanting to make these cupcakes for my daughters birthday and I am new to cake decorating so I am unsure what tip I should use to get the swirl effect that is on these cup cakes. I hope the picture loads and I do this right I haven't posted on here before. Better yet I will just put the link in LOL that seems to be easiest. Thanks!!

Could try piping it through just a coupler without a tip attachment or the plastic screw thingo on it and make sure it's not the one that has one of those splits in the side

I agree with the previous poster, or you could use a # 12

You could just cut the the end of a disposable bag to the size you want and do without a tip but if you want to use a tip the best one would be the size 1A.

I agree with Size 1A. The #12 would be too small. The coupler w/o split would work also, so it would have to be a coupler that is not Wilton. Good Luck!

A clay gun would also work to make the stems.
