How to create the cupcake swirl
Creating a cupcake swirl is simple with a little practice. The key is to use a piping tip with an opening as large as a dime. You may use a round tip for a smooth swirl or a star tip for a swirl with ridges. The best way to get started is to take your piping bag with the tip of your chose and practice piping onto a plate. Once you run out of buttercream you can just scrap it up and put back into the bag to try again. Once you feel comfortable with piping on the plate you can move onto the cupcakes.
Hold the bag straight up over the middle of the cupcake. Start putting pressure on the bag so the butter cream comes out. work your way from the middle of the cupcake to the top of the cupcake. Now work clock ways and keep building the buttercream up till you reach the height you would like ( I like the look of two swirls). When you reach the top stop squeezing the bag but keep making the swirling motion to cut off the tip.
