I am new to decorating but the two cakes I have done so far has business coming my way.  I want to know what kind of piping tip is good for writing (shopping at hobby lobby wilton brand) and how do i thin out buttercream icing to write on a cake HELP!!!!

Tip 2 or 3, and you can just add water to thin.

I write with tip #4 and two-tone it so the writing looks like it's from a smaller tip than it is (like white, mixed with a coordinating color), and it's easier on the hand plus no worries about clogs.  Thinning with water works fine, or you can thin with piping gel.

HOW TO:
Make tip #127D (giant rose tip) Ruffle cake,
Write with icing,
Make buttercream roses on a stick:

I did two toned color one time and yes it really made a difference. I use tip #2. Maybe I will try bigger tip next time.
