I am just starting out in baking and I am going CRAZY trying to find the right tip to ice a cupcake. I know that they all leave a different look, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me what their prefrence is....
Thank you!

1M is the only one I have tried so far, to give that classic cupcake swirl look.

My 2 favorites are Wilton's 1M & 1A. Gives me the 2 totally opposite looks.

I did cupcakes last night and will be posting pictures later today. My margarita cupcakes use the 1M and my espresso cupcakes use the 1A. icon_smile.gif
