'Tis the season for grad and brides, so it's time to bring this back to the surface for those of us struggling with ideas. Thanks for the all the links! I think I've finally found one for my cake this week.

Though some might think it old-fashioned, I like the Wilton triple-bead border. I think it looks really elegant! Here are the instructions from the 1990 yearbook: "Using tip 5, pipe a line of frosting around cake base. Pipe beads on the outer side of the line. Then pipe the second row next of cake. Add third row in line center."

I used it on both of these cakes:

Love it! I just saw a similar border in a 1970-something Wilton book, except the beads were off-set from one another. They called it a popcorn border. I'm doing a grad cake that has 3 school colors and the triple-bead border would be perfect to incorporate all 3 colors!

Awesome thread! I think I added a whole page to my favorites! And bookmarked some You Tube videos too! By the time I get to the bordering of a cake_ I am usually ready to be done with it-- thanks for reminding me that I'm not quite finished yet!

I was just able to snag a used copy online for $28 -- I can hardly wait until it gets here!!!!! Thanks for the suggestion, Kakeladi!

Love this thread! As a newbie to the world of borders icon_smile.gif I really appreciate all the fantastic ideas. I saw this one a while ago and I love it. I think it looks great. I ice cupcakes with that tip all the time and I never thought to try something like that!

Here is only a sample, she does many other looks too.. I am speaking of the pink border.

Soooo glad this thread is here! I'm new to caking and am guilty of spending hours on fondant accents and models, then wonder why the cake still looks dull- it's because I always forget to border!!! Still very useless with piping, but I plan to get some cake dummys and get practising as it can make all the difference.

So many to try, so little time to try them!! icon_smile.gif

Okay, I'm adding this one that I just tried this morning. I LOVE it!!!!!! It's from the Wilton Way of Cake Decorating Volume 3 that cakelady recommended earlier in the thread. I bought it about a year ago now and can't quit looking at it! It has tons of great ideas.

Well, for some reason, the photo won't attach. So, hopefully this link will work!
