Hey ya'll im looking for the biggest star tip i can find. I want to make a swirl on the top of the giant cupcake for a cupcake wedding im doing next friday. So i really need to order today. I've tried the 1M and the look really wasn't what i want. I'll be using the 1M for the swirl on the standard size cupcakes and I want the swirl on the giant one to be in proportion to that. Someone said the wilton 4B, 6B, and 8B is bigger but anybody know by how much? and of those three which is the biggest? Anybody know how the Bake it Pretty ones compare in size to these? Any thoughts would be much appreciated! icon_biggrin.gif

Hello- The biggest star tip that Wilton has is an 8B. That would be my suggestion for the cupcake cake. ~Good Luck~

I bought all the pastry tips on "bake it pretty" and they are gigantic and cheap!
They are made my Ateco and are 5X larger than the biggest Wilton ones.
