I am no expert at cake decorating at all, but I'll try to help. I think that you can make the best looking swags by using any of the petal tips (like the one you would use to make the rose petals). If you're using Wilton tips, the most common ones are #s 59-64 or 101-104.

Or you could always find a picture of a cake with swags you like and then aske the decorater how they made them. HTH. Good luck!

There are great videos online that show you how to pipe swags, that's how I learned. Maybe this site has them as well ? I found mine on UTUBE before I found this site. I had to practise the art of pulling the tip away from the cake and then back to attach it to the cake again before I started another swag. It sounds more difficult than it is really but is not too hard with practise. HTH. Necey.
