I am new to cake decorating but would like to learn to make the BC poinesetta. I have the 55 pc master tip set and also the beginner set. The tip that the BC poinesetta calls for is not in those is their another tip that I can use that will have about the same effect??

Just about any leaf tip should work. I like the V cut leaf tips the best. They make the best points. I can't remember the number though. Sorry.

The leaf tip that Sugarflowers is probably referring to is the #352--it's my fav leaf tip. I doubt that it's in your sets but worth the time and expense to get it. (It's no more expensive than other tips.) The other leaf tips (for me, anyway) leave split ends which have to be closed with your fingers. But the 352 produces great leaves and points--would work well for poinsettias. Practice a little and you'll get the hang of it.

If you can't take the Wilton classes I recommend purchase the course I, II, and III books which have detailed instructions in them.

You ought to check out this thread: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-53872.html

Koolaidstains made some poinsettia cupcakes that are gorgeous. She used tip #352 as suggested above. Her thread is about the 10th one down.
