I am reading everywhere that the Wilton 1M tip is the best for that swirl icing on top of cupcakes. I have an Ateco set of tips and am wondering what tip number i can use that is the same (or very very simlar) to the Wilton 1M tip so I can get the same effect without having to spend that oh so expensive $1.65 for the wilton tip.

Are the tips you have the large kind, or the standard ones?

I use Ateco for cupcakes too. My favourite is the large open star tip #826 for cupcakes, a really nice big swirl. It's similar to the Wilton 1M, but larger.....which I think is easier for piping swirls on cupcakes. thumbs_up.gif

Thank you! When i went to baking/pastry school we got the whole Ateco set of tips, so i have a wide range of small to large tips.

Antonia- the way you iced those cupcakes is EXACTLY how I'd like mine to look this weekend thumbs_up.gif What is your technique (i.e. how do you hold the bag/tip?) I've never done it that way before so I'm eager to learn!

Thanks!!

I might go try to find a Wilton 1M, someone on a different thread referred to the swirl I use as looking like a "pile of dog poo". I am assuming that's not cute! icon_razz.gif haha But seriously those swirls are pretty antonia!

If you can't find the Wilton 1M, use the larger tip Ateco #826
(I like it way better, it's bigger!)
