Hello everyone,
I have to write on my cc. But I simply can't get in as much as others seem to. I use the Prestige's 1B nozzle. Will taking an even tinier nozzle help?

Not sure what Prestige's 1B nozzle is I tried to google it but got nothing
I use the Wilton round tips 1-12 depending on how thick you want the writing, also the icing consistency makes a big difference make sure its fairly thin so your lines wont break while writing

I'm unfamiliar with a 1B nozzle, but if it's similar to a #1 or #2, it should do the trick.

If you are writing (as in cursive handwriting), not printing, you can usually use whichever tip you'd like, even if it's a #4 tip, if you two-tone the icing colors. That way, if you have to sort of overlap the writing it will still be legible while giving the illusion that it isn't so tight. Writing tall also helps to squeeze it all in.

If you are using handprinting, writing tall also helps.
