Tip 2D probably.

It looks like a big star tip, you just give a little wiggle when you pipe, to give the wavy look.

I would use a fairly soft icing and firm pressure on the pastry bag, which will help give it that ruffle effect. I did some like this last summer, and I'm pretty sure that's how I did it. icon_smile.gif

This is what I'd suggest. I wouldn't wiggle, but squeezing pretty hard will give you that effect.

it kinda looks like a rose tip...i watched a tutorial on how to make carnations and thats what it looks like to me...maybe tip number 124 or 127..up and down motion then build on your base..let it ruffle out...=) good luck... icon_smile.gif

I think its a star tip too, also the CCs are minis so I dont think you can get that effect on regular sized CCs, please someone correct me if im wrong?!

wow..looking at that tutorial does help...use the 2D...it will cover the entire cupcake and give the fuffle effect you want...see we all learn something on here from all helpers... icon_redface.gif

I doubt very much that they are minis. They do look like a regular cupcake size just not muffin sized icon_smile.gif

Lovely swirl!

It looks like the tip you would use to make a rose. If you look at the one cupcake in the upper left hand corner it looks like they started there. Looks like a bunch of wiggles going inwards. I bet the bigger the tip the better it will look.

And one more; really pretty. I think 2D makes the prettiest cupcake swirls.

And if you start on the outside, and go towards the inside, you get this, same tip:
