Materials for Cupcake Decorating
In the video, I am using the following piping tips:
Wilton2D or 1M for the ridged swirl or buttercream rose swirls
Wilton 21 for a smaller ridged swirl/design
Ateco 808- huge round tip (for smooth swirls or a quick way to frost your cupcake before smoothing)
Wilton 12- Medium sized round tip (same use as above)
104 petal/ruffle tip
Viva Paper Towel (the smoothing technique that we demonstrated used this brand of paper towel which has no quilting or impressions).
