I used your cupcake recipe, Marianne, but my swirls didn't come out very well using the Wilton method of making one small swirl on top of a bigger one. Making one continuous swirl from beginning to end worked much better for me and my finished cup cakes looked very pretty! I felt like a real pro :)
