How do these work in regards to number and letter. I have a few that I've got with magazines, sets etc. I normally use a 9MM nozzle, lately I can't see to make my buttercream neat. I get peed off with it because I know I can do better. I HATE plastic nozzles, BC doesnt seem to be as sharp with plastic. 

 

What do people tend to use on a regular basis or which would you recommend for a nice rose type swirl effect?

Ahh thank you. 

 

Another question.. 1 of many (sorry) Looking at that website, I take it it does make a difference when you start on the inside to the outside? I have done both but not at same time so I've never noticed. Can you tell I'm a learner! LOL

 

This is the nozzle I use, it looks very similar but..... Is it the same size! Arghh

If you are in the UK - grab the Lakeland set - they are great for cupcake swirls/roses etc

Here are examples of the different tips (including the Lakeland set)

Yes if you start on the inside and work your way out it makes it look different than if you start on the outside and work your way in.  I believe (I don't do them) that the rose design that ellavanilla mentioned is if you start on the inside and work your way out.  To get height I always start on the out and work in.

AJenna, that nozzle is the one i use for rose swirls; and yes you pipe fron inside out, start right in the middle with a flower and work out and keep going around till your at the outer edge keeping the swirls all the same level, if you want an icecream type swirl start ob the outside and towards the middle to look like a Mr whippy type swirl. hope that helps? i'm also in the uk x

Yes thank you :) 

 

I have done good piping in the past but at the minute I can't get the piping or BC right! Frustrating :(

My Wilton nozzle came today! Why did I not buy one sooner!!!! Its sooooo much better than the similar one I was using!

 

Thanks for your advice guys :)
