I am just curious what everyone's favorite tip number is when doing large orders and just a simple/basic swirl.

Depends on how u want it to look.. If u want it smoothe the picture above is good or u could not use a tip at all to get another smooth look.. 2d is a good tip if u want the swirl look

I just cut 2-2 1/2 inches off of a disposable bag, fill it up and go.

If you want the round swirl use Wilton 1A or 2A
If you want the classic swirl use Wilton 1M or 2D

Thank you everyone. I have been using the 1M but was curious what others were doing. I will try the others and see what I think. Thank you so much! I love having a forum like this to use as a sounding board, my husband while supportive, often looks at me and says "huh?" icon_lol.gif

This isn't a "tip" tip. When dealing with large orders, get yourself a 24 inch pastry bag and learn how to use it. Buddy talked about it in his book. I then started watching for it in his shows, especially in the early shows. Once you figure out the technique, it's a huge time-saver!
