My New Favorite Swirl Tip

I have been trying to figure out how to make cupcakes look "pretty" without having a decoration on them.........and not look boring regardless of their taste. Some people, like Dave, do not want a decoration that adds a little crunch thing on their cupcake - they just simply want a cupcake.

I have seen the nice smooth swirl of icing that a lot of shops use to deliver the icing. Nice, but not me"ish" and honestly.......some of those smooth swirls of icing are like giant globs of icing when you bite into them. This tip does exactly what I was looking for. Icing, not too much, not too little, delicate, fun........

and they look good in a box. This one is a keeper!
These cupcakes were Milk Chocolate with a Chocolate Buttercream icing and White Silk with a Vanilla Buttercream icing.
