My Cupcake Piping Techniques

 This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my privacy policy for more details

One of my favourite things to make are cupcakes and I just love adding the buttercream swirls to the top. I thought I would put a video together showing my four favourite, and most used icing tips/nozzles and the techniques that I use to make the swirls.

In this video tutorial I show you how I use the Wilton 1M tip to create a classic ‘icecream’ swirl. The Wilton 2D to create a pretty rose cupcake, and two of my other favourites which create a smooth round swirl and a ruffle swirl.

I really hope you enjoy this video tutorial. If you do please subscribe to my YouTube channel. Also I would love to hear what you think, if you have any comments or questions please just let me know.

Below is a list of the tools I used to make the bauble cake that you might find useful:
