Use tip, cut disposable decorating bag and desired shades of icing to decorate as follows:
For red and blue cupcakes, use tip 1M to cover cupcake top with rosettes.
For purple cupcakes, use tip 4B to cover cupcake top with stars.
For green cupcakes, use tip 126 to cover cupcake top with three rows of petals.
For yellow cupcakes, use tip 126 to cover cupcake top with an upright swirl.
For orange cupcakes, use tip 104 to pipe a tri-level rosebud on cupcake top.
Assemble stand and position cupcakes.
The rosette has the tight, swirling look of a rose, but is achieved in one continuous rotation, rather than with wrapped layers of petals. Single rosettes are also used as candleholders on top of a cupcake.
The star tip creates the most popular, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated edges of the star tip makes ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out. Use for borders, details such as buttons and facial features, flower centers, filling in cakes baked in shaped pans.
