Hi, I work in a retail bakery. Today while organizing my icing tips, I found a plethora of these U or C-shaped tips (seems like #79, #80, or #81). I have a whole bunch and I'd love to start using them! What techniques are they used for? Is there a specific name for this kind of tip? Thank you!

Those are the Wilton "chrysanthemum (mum)" tips.  From small to large:  79, 80, 81

Here is a tutorial on the Wilton site:

The recent cake craze is to use the HUGE version of a mum tip (different appearance, same result, only HUGE.  The Wilton version of the huge mum tip is discontinued, but you can get the tip from other sources online.
