I want to make cupcakes that look like the ones below. I'm assuming its some big, open tip but I'm just not sure which one. I can't use my coupler b/c it has the line on the side that leaves the indentation...Any ideas???

It probably has to do also with which frosting and the consistency. I'm guessing the first one is some kind of marshmallow based frosting. At least it looks like one I saw that talked about some kind of smore cupcake.

Soft meringue butter creams pipe like that if you hold the tip still straight down and then stop pressure and pull the tip away for the Hershey's kiss peak.

Just cut a hole in a disposable bag then you can have any size round you like without using a tip. icon_smile.gif

I'm thinking they used one of the larger Ateco round tips...#807, 808, or 809....but not sure.

I agree with all the above suggestions.

But I wouldn't put an M&M on the icing, as depicted in your second picture...............looks too much like a certain part of a woman's anatomy!!! icon_eek.gificon_lol.gif

Maybe it's just me! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

You could also use a Wilton 1A tip.
