I watch cupcake wars and other cake type shows and was trying to do the really nice swirl on the cupcakes. Not the one with line but the solid tube type. Every time I try the line is really small and thin. What am I doing wrong? What tip should I be using? Is there a video to show me how to do this? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank Susan

After buying a large round wilton tip, i discovered that you get better results when you just cut a hole in a piping bag. save yourself the money.

Agree...a large round tip works well. Also, i put a round kiss looking squeeze of BC right in the middle, then i start my swirl on the outter edge of the cupcake and work in, going over the top of the kiss of BC it really gives a nice lift with less swirls! Hope I explain ok.

can also use an open coupler without the slit in the side. (or tape over the slit)

Yes you can definitely use the coupler without the slit. Unfortunately all my couplers have the slit and i can't use them.
