I just bought this tip because I thought it would be very pretty on cupcakes. I know that the cupcakes below from Sweetapolita blog were frosted using this tip.

My only concern is that she pipes her frosting counter-clockwise, while I've always swirled clockwise. I know this sounds silly, but I'm concerned only because the piping tip itself swirls in one direction. Does anyone know from experience whether it will make a big difference which way I swirl? Thanks!

Is 887 a left-handed tip, or are you a lefty? It might give you straight lines instead of the kind that look like they're spiraling.
