What are 4 basic icing tips to start out with?

Teresita - from Toa Alta, Puerto Rico

A smaller round (tip #3 or 5), a star (#18 or 22), a leaf tip (I like tip # 352), and a petal/ruffle tip (#102, 103 or 104) are some of the most common tips used in decorating. It's nice to have extra sizes of rounds and stars.
