Probably a #12, or even a larger round pastry tip, but I imagine that the consistency of the icing is key here, too. It looks more like one of the meringue buttercreams - Swiss or Italian - rather than the powdered sugar one we usually use.

Look on cakejournal, I think it is cakejournal.com, not at home so i'm not sure, in the cupcake tutorial section and you will see the Ateco tips they recomend.

For that look, I have just used the coupler in my bag, no metal tip. Or for that matter, you wouldn't even NEED a coupler, just snip your bag the size you need. Just MY way of doing things. icon_biggrin.gif

Yep, I agree with crisseyann, no tip needed, and I would say this is definitely a cream cheese frosting in the picture

I agree that you don't need a tip, but if you WANT to use a tip, go with Wilton 1A.

I jst bought an ateco tip for this swirl, its bigger than a coupler, but I'm not sure if the exact size.I've done them with no tip, but it wasn't as perfect I didn't think.the seam in the bag.I guess you could turn it though...

It looks like an Ateco 809 to me. I used one for the seashell cupcakes in my photos. The swirl looked pretty much just like the photo you posted. It's hard to see because I piled so much stuff on top, but you can see it. It was a cream cheese icing, too, if that matters.
