I think it would be hard to do a normal swirl on the giant cupcake. I think I usually see lots of little swirls on them. I like lots of the rose swirl on mine. Either way, I think regular buttercream is fine however you decide to frost it.

I made one recently that looked sort of like the standard swirl. I used half a ball pan and then just used buttercreme and a 1M tip to swirl around and around. It was as close as I could come.

Here's the pic:
