I keep seeing cuppies with a wonderful fat swirl, without the texture of the 1 M. It looks like it is just a round tip but I am wondering which tip it is.
I'd post a picture but I am not certain how to do that if it isn't my own.

Wilton makes several different round sizes. There's a 1A and 2A.

I just did these with a Wilton 1A tip:

And I know some people just use the coupler without a tip you just have to make sure it isn't a coupler with a slit in the side.

Ditto on 1A or 2A.
I wasn't able to find mine at Joanns or Michaels; fortunately my local cake supply shop had them. You may have to go that route or order them online, just so you're aware. icon_smile.gif

Are they the 11/16? I just ordered some from Ultimate Baker and one website I checked said to get 809 and 829 for the giant swirls on the cupcakes. I hope these are right cause I already ordered them!

If I did my math correctly the 809 will be a little bigger than 1A, but you should be just fine! It's just a few millimeters difference.

Here are some that I did with 1A - your swirls will be just a little fatter.

Yes, I discovered today there are none at Michaels. I may just have to try it with the coupler. I'll check AC moore and Joanne's here but from the sounds of it it isn't likely.
