AI use the 1M tip which is the same that I use for cupcakes.
As per this video you can use the 8 point star tip, perfect for what Im looking for. I haven't been able to find it under wilton...any suggestions on a wilton equivalent tip?
You mean something like this??
I am guessing this is the "miniature" look you are looking for? You can just use the 13,14,16,18,21. Each from smaller to larger star tips. Pick one, and cover the cuppie in small "rosettes" in the same way you would cover the large cupcake cake with the 1M.
As for the chocolate shell, I would pipe the white dots first, chill, then add the pink chocolate.
