A lot of you have asked me what tip i use to make the swirl of frostings on my cupcakes.
I recommend Wilton's 1M (No. 2110 Open Star Decorating Tip) tip for starters -- that's what i started with.... and Wilton's instructions for "how to make the swirls" can be found here.
Other tips I love to use can be found in this Ateco set.
These tips are larger than the Wilton tip. I love the open star & closed star tips, which is what I use the most. Also needed, but not necessary (because you can use a gallon-size ziploc bag to hold the frosting) is a pastry bag.... whether it's a disposable one or a reusable one, i do recommend nothing smaller than a 16" bag.
