Probably from a craft store that sells Wilton products or from a store that specializes in cookware.  I got my size 1A from a craft store.  Also I'm sure you can get them on line.

I bought one at the Bulk Barn here in Canada, but I'm sure you could also find one online.

i don't know where to buy a tip but this is one of my favorite ways to pipe Smiley

i think it's so cute haha

makes even normal size cupcakes look like tiny tea party ones haha  Grin Grin

here's what i do:

i take a piece of very stiff paper (the scrapbooking kind with the foiled finish on one side, ensures that the frosting wont soak the cardboard for as long as you're piping  Smiley)

i cut a piece about, eh.... approx. 3x4 inches? and then coil it so it makes a long skinny cone (with the foiled side inwards and the tip being as thick as you want the piping to be)

tape that baby and trim both sides so they're flush (ya know, so there isnt that pointy corner from the coiling)

then take a sturdy freezer-type bag (or piping bag but i'm cheap haha)

then cut the tip blah blah blah so that the hole fits the cone so it slips in till only about an inch - inch and a half still inside the bag

then TAPE the bag to the coil on the outside (i've found duck tape works the best haha but whatever you have Smiley. you just have to make sure the weight of the frosting wont push the cardboard out)



i hope this helps Smiley

it's always worked really well for me Smiley

ps. it's very important the tube is skinny and long (but you dont have to compromise the size of the piping Smiley) otherwise there's a huge chance for the frosting to push the cardboard out of the bag  Undecided messy mess lol

haha i know this looks so so long but it's very simple i just like giving overly detailed instructions haha Smiley

good luck! post pictures when you're done? Smiley

I don't know about a tip, but it almost looks about the size the icing would come out of one of my piping plungers if there wasn't a tip on it at all.  That's what the excess looks like in the bowl, anyway.

Good luck!

I bought one today! Yep, Jinjeet Phoenix is right, it's size 1A, and i got it from a cake decorating store. I had to buy a bigger piping bag than my usual ones too, as the lady said u need a reinforced one with such a big tip!

Yes Bunny of DOOM! I use mine with the pastry bag I have plus I'd already purchased "couplers" to hold them on the bag.  All worth it but then again if RCKFELLA only wants to use it once or twice, I'd think that simply cutting out the corner of a plastic bag and working "very Carefully" it could be done.  Just more convenient to have the right tip.

thanks for your replies! i had my suspicions that it was the 1A only because it's the biggest one on they have but now im definitely buying it. whats this about the coupler though i thought tips were all a standard size?

There are different sized tips for different types of jobs.
I don't know how to post a pic from the web so I took a pic of two of my tips.  You can see the difference in sizes.  The small one is the "standard" size and the larger one is the actual A1 with its coupler.  The smaller regular one I already assembled in the decorator bag so you can see how it works.  I hope this helps.
(Here I used a clear bag so you can see where everything is)
