Try my Homemade Vanilla Icing recipe!

To make an ice cream swirl on top of your cupcake use Wilton 1M tip. 

To make the swirl using the Wilton 1M:

Hold your fitted piping bag straight up. Then about an inch away from the center squeeze the icing in the middle creating the center swirl. Then bring the swirl around to the outside of the cupcake and back around to the middle. Building the icing up like ice cream!
