Are there any posts that have a tutorial on how to pipe using buttercream.

Go to Wilton.com and search techniques... a lot of the descriptions will also have a video available to watch.

If you're interested in all aspects of cake decorating, you might consider taking some classes or applying for a job in a bakery.

The Wilton site also has a chart that shows what each tip can be used for.
