All of these borders are wonderful.
I'll have to try the 104 border and see how it looks.

Has anyone tried that #104 border? Think it might be large overlapping circles or small ones?

I'll usually put a reverse shell with a #18 tip just touching the top part, garnishing it with a few small leaves. I really like that 104 border though because it reminds me of the hemline on my wedding dress.




I am having a hard time figuring this one out, in my head. I guess I need to try it. Is it going on the sides of the cake at the top?...and I agree, how large are the circles? If someone gets this figured out, please post a pic of it. I am curious.

I tried it but it looked odd...maybe I am not doing it right. This has been stuck in my head.

I love this thread...hope it never dies again. I too was getting way bored with the same old shells...now I've got some things to practice on. This site is such a good tool for decorators.

For those of you who were wondering about the border using the #104 tip and making overlapping circles. I sent a pm to Rose_N_Crantz ....and she answered right back. .....and she just recently made a video of her doing it. She has the link in her sig. line now. The beginning of the clip is of her making a buttercream rose and after that she does the border....check it out. A new one for me.

I was having a hard time trying to picture that one in my head. I had a vision of complete circles overlapping each other and couldn't picture where she was getting points. I am going to try it at work tomorrow. I'm too lazy to make icing at home. It went really fast and I am all about fast decorating.....and buttercream. .....and I love new ideas.

For all I know, this may be a "standard" border; I don't know because I never took any kind of a class. But one of my favorite borders for "girly" cakes is a double ruffle made with a leaf tip:

THanks for resurrecting this thread! Somehow I missed it the first time around. Beautiful borders! This is great inspiration as my piping skills are lacking!

Well, I lied. I don't have the link. I guess I must have deleted it when I was cleaning up. UGH! And it was awesome too! If anyone has the link for the video could you please post it?

BCJean, could you do a tutorial on how to do different ruffle borders? I particularly like the one done on the purple gingham cake. It's the same border on the poodle cake listed in this thread.
