Locally I can't get much of anything so I always order online. What tip should I order? Prefer a wilton tip since I have my bags cut to fit that and whatnot. Well, if the pastry tips I see people talking about fit my regular ol' bags (I don't use disposable) then that's fine as well!!!

I keep guessing but can't find a round tip for cupcakes?

I want whatever one(s) people use to do an ice cream swirl, and also that cute little "poof" lol.

This seems like the most basic tip yet ordering is annoying when I don't know the exact number!

Just something to do plain swirls like and

I use a 5PT or a 6PT. (These are my larger swirl-makers versus the smaller 12.) Don't know if they're Wilton or Ateco. They say "Magic Tip" on them and they're made in Korea. Both make a nice swirl like what you're looking for. I purchase a lot of my tips through Golda's Kitchen -- I believe she's out of Canada. For larger swirls, you can try the Ateco 807, 808 or 809, but those do get fairly big. HTH!
