My favorite cake tip for doing the classic spiral is this star:
Start on the outside and squeeze your icing out in a circular motion (keeping even pressure while squeezing) and go towards the center of the cupcake (it is so hard to take pictures with your left hand while icing with the right hand). I like to only cover about 75% of the top of the cupcake so people can still see what kind of cupcake it is:
Then you can add whatever you want to jazz it up!
And they're so good! I promise :)
I hope everyone is having a great Sunday! Only 8 more days until we leave for Alaska for 2 WEEKS! Anyone ever been? I need some packing recommendations!
