Where There's a Whisk... | Piping tips and frosting patterns
So you followed the recipe exactly. The cupcakes have baked and cooled. They smell delicious. Hard part's done, right? WRONG. Presentation is everything, y'all. And frosting the cupcakes is the best part, because you can be as creative as you want! (Whereas, if you used that sort of creativity in your recipe, you could end up with some nasty cupcakes.) Below are the piping tips I own. Wilton only because I'm bougie. They help me create flowers, petals or just pretty swirly designs!
Multi open tip #233: good for imitating grass and fur
Round tip #3, #8, and #12: Use for basic swirls or polka-dots. Also the best to us when piping two colors out of two different bags!
Open star #16, #18, and #21: good for soft fluffy roses and tall ruffles
Petal tip #103, #67: sharper roses, petals, and leaves
Leaf tip #352: creates very pretty leaves and ruffle/ripple borders.
Specialty tip #224: makes perfect little drop flowers every time!
There are literally hundreds of different shapes and sizes. These aren't even the tip of the iceberg —GET IT?! TIP. HA.
