I think you would just use a large round tip, like a 12 from Wilton, and hold the tip in the icing as you pipe to not get any lines.

Do you think they piped the icing with a large tip then lightly went over it with a spatula to smooth and pull off making the point?

Is the opening of the tip wide?

Pastry tips/nozzles/tubes go up to 3/4-inch/19mm in diameter. Cake decorating tips/nozzles/tubes go up to about 11/16-inch/17.5mm. An Ateco 809 would be a common one.

Wouldn't the open end of a large coupler work just as well? No tip needed!
