Hey all,

I have seen some really cute cupcakes in the gallery who have a swirl not made with a star tip but rather a round one.. Was wondering what size this might be?

I just use the coupler as my tip as it's the largest "tip" I have. I put a small piece of tape over the little slot in the coupler to get a nice round pipe.

We use an Ateco 809.

Largest round tip you can get or an open coupler w/o the slot.

I have used the 1A tip and it makes a nice swirl.

I use the Wilton #12 and it works really well for me.
