I want to buy some Ateco tips, but I have to order online so I won't be able to look at the tips to see the size. Can someone please let me know which tip is best for doing big swirls on cupcakes. I already have the Wilton 1M, but I'd like to get the Ateco ones as well.
I use a 21 or 22 for swirls (the star tips) the bigger the tip, the larger the swirl is going to be.
I asked vita752001 and she said for this swirl:
she used Ateco 847.
We use Ateco 829 (open star) 869 (french) and 809(plain)
This link has a picture of frosting swirls ad the tips used to make each.
