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.


God Bless You, my nights of torment are over! Rfisher for President :judge:!!!!!!!!

 This one is close to the German tip. http://www.amazon.ca/Ateco-Decorating-Tip-885/dp/B0000VLEO0

Someone with better piping skills would do better, I am sure. I used the turntable, because I cannot move my hands in the direction as needed, as it is not the same as a normal swirl.... image.jpg 167k .jpg file . As I see it, once a topper would be applied & pushed down, it would look much more the same...
I could be wrong, it may be a unique tip that's out there...I think it's a unique method with a common tip......I'd like to see someone with mad piping skills go at it....

No pain at all. The truth is I half forgot and half am super busy! So here's the situation, I piped this at the studio, then packed my tools in my car. Then I moved to a new house and packed a bunch more stuff into my car so I will ge to it. Off the top of my head I think it is 1B? I will dig it out, sorry everyone!

I odered the 1M, 2D and a 12 piece Ateco set, never heard of the 1B. Oh well, any excuse to order more tips :lol:

Well ladies, this picture I found blows the theory that it's a size perception issue. I see the same technique on cupcakes that are most definitely not mini's. I have already got an 855, 190, and 1b on their way to me for more fiddling! Hopefully I can get closer..... image.jpg 143k .jpg file

I bought some weird looking tips this week - I"ll see what I can do as well.  Yes, that coral cupcake on the right is definately big, and honestly just looks swirled on.

Hi Ladies icon_smile.gif

Been lurking on this thread for ages, but stumbled on this page today randomly, and the piping on these cakes looks very similar?

http://www.sweethartscakesandbakes.com/2011/12/twinkle-star-cupcakes.html#.UxMSSJIgGSM


She doesn't specify the actual tip number used as its from a UK store branded set, but there's a picture of it and it looks like a star tip but one that has straight ended slits. I did think that was the case looking at the original picture, as the ends are slightly square, and not pointed (if that makes any sense LOL!) but if you can find an equivalent in the US I think that's what your after. I also think it's a really slow piped swirl to get the 'flop' effect?

Anyway, hope that might help someone? icon_smile.gif

Thanks Mel37!  It looks like the most similar Wilton tip would be 1E.

Thank you Mel37! She showed an even better photo of the tip close up in a different posting. For me to buy the Lakeland tip, only available in a set I think...was a bit over $70 to get it here to the United States. If anyone has any luck with a 1E let me know please! I might also try my hand at taking a pair of pliers to a 1M or 2D......
