I am new to cupcakes. I started as just a little activity to do with my son using box cake/frosting and now finding myself wanting to branch out to scratch ingredients. I really love the look of the cupcakes below and hoping to for the same outcome. Can anyone tell me what type of buttercream are on the cupcakes picture? Also how would one achieve the "Dairy Queen Cone" effect with the piping?

Thanks for you help!

First upload the photo into an online photo site like Photobucket (getting a photobucket account is easy and FREE) then just copy the photo's image code (IMG Code) from photobucket and paste it into your post. Then when you hit 'submit comment' the photo will display in the thread. Easy.

Photobucket is here:

I'm pretty sure you can also use Flickr like this too - just look for the image code (IMG code) and copy and paste it.
