Topic: What Decorating Tip Do I need
beginner_cupcakemaker 07/25/2009 8:11 PM

I am a new cupcake maker and I want to make the following icicng design:

Can someone please tell me what tip I would need to make this design, also and tips for having this consistancy of icing. I am not interested in fondant icing - i like buttercream and better yet, cream cheese!

Any help would be great.

Those look like they are done with a big round tip, to me. Maybe 12 -- experiment.

A medium consistency buttercream, perhaps a little on the soft side, should work for this purpose.

Wilton has several nice cream cheese frosting recipes, under Recipes in the menu at left. A really good one is here:

Remember that cake frosted with cream cheese will need to be refrigerated.

Thanks Jeanne!

I will try today. This started with me wanting to make extra special cupcakes for my soon to be 1 year old's 1st Bday ... now I am addicted.

Thanks for the reminder on the Cream Cheese - I just don't like the chewiness of fondant and many buttercreams are too sugaryand not creamy enough. I sure will have fun trying!
