Per request I'm sharing the blender file here (it's not much to look at, but I've included 3 examples of "Bad Icing")
I've seen so many examples of spirals, but none of them seem to hit my exact need.
I'm attempting to build some icing for a cupcake I'm designing. I'm also SUPER new to Blender, this is literally Hello World v2.0 (I like a billion others made the donut first).
Here is a summary of what I tried. In frame one you can see that the curve "Seems fine".
I've gotten "somewhat" closer using a spherical path but still not all I had hoped for. Most of the archimedean don't work as I can't get their X scale down, or there are gaps between the icing. I also tried building an array of my extrude shape, but I couldn't get it to do a "Screw" shape. Any suggestions, recommendations or tutorials you might recommend are welcome! At this point I'm not even worried about trying to twist my extruded object to get the perfect match.
I appreciate you taking the time to read through this! Paul
