I don't think its a tip at all now, I think it's a technique!

I want to learn how to do the "Crabapple Signature Swirl" but she gives master classes in Australia!:cry:

 

She does have a Crabapple cupcake book though :party:

Good find Enga!  But when I went to her website, the signature swirl looked like this:

There was a tutorial for this on the CC homepage last week - I'll try to find the link.

I saw that one too and I still cant get it right,lol. I don't think she will show you how to do the other ones unless you take the class, which is understandable but if you look at this website that offers the groupon you will notice the irregularities in the swirl pleats. The style is similar to the OP pic but not as defined. What star tip would make pleats that wide?

It's driving me CRAZY trying to figure this one out.  The cupcake design is so pretty and different, wish I knew for sure. Sigh:roll:

Sorry Annie!  Those of us who are "Type A" types want to replicate that look exactly, not just pipe out "something close".  I have a feeling it isn't as simple as pulling out a readily available Wilton tip and going to town on a cupcake.  I have piped a lot of swirls and flowers, and have never produced something with the specific look in the original photo. :)

Not you Liz, it's all good.

Do you have the 2D? She said it was two loose rosettes stacked on top of one another. I don't have any BC on hand (gasp!) or else I'd try it.
post #41 of 78

Annie, yeah, I tried 2D.  Just by looking at the number of pleats or petals on the photo, I would guess the tip used on the bottom had to have 10 slits, and the one on the top 8 slits.  Maybe Wilton 1E or 1G?  I don't have those though - just saw them online.

 

Maybe my technique just sucks, but I couldn't get close with the tips I have.  It almost looks on the top layer like each petal is folding back on to itself - not a clue on how to do that.  That was why I originally thought each "petal" was piped individually.

 

I don't even sell flipping cupcakes, so why I care how to do this is beyond me!  LOL!! :grin::grin::grin:

LOL!  I love making cupcakes for people, especially kids, I don't need to go to the mountain tops to get anything  too exotic.

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something

I'm no expert by any means. But the bug hit me on this one hard, to figure it out. I have limited experience in piping, but yes, from what I did today....I was able to recreate a very close facsimile. 2D tip and utilizing a turntable. Also, I think that maybe the original photo is a mini cupcake? I think that may skew the perception. Taking this into account, plus the squash down affect the flower and leaf gives, I think I figured it out. ... Oh, "hi" to you all. Long time lurker here.
I love the holiday classics!

Hi Rfisher!  Good job!  I also thought that might have been a mini cupcake, because the petals seemed so "thick" if it were a regular sized cake.  And yes, the squashing down does account for the petals looking folded back down.

 

Gold star for you!  Nice to meet you!
