Icing recipe to get a perfect cupcake swirl?

I made a buttercream icing for my cupcakes. When piping the icing onto the cupcakes, the icing started to ooze off the sides of the cupcake. It was a complete mess to say the least! Can someone recommend an icing recipe that would work good for big cupcake swirls if buttercream is not the way to go.
