Can anyone tell me how to make a rope border out of BC frosting?
Use a #16, 18, 21 or #32 tip. The larger the number, the heavier the "rope."
You can practice on an overturned cake pan -- make a short diagonal (about 1/2' to 3/4" long). Tuck the tip in front, and repeat.
Here's a link: http://www.wilton.com/decorating/basic/rope.cfm
Hope this helps! (and welcome to Cake Central! )
Someone told me once that this cake pic http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=322993 helped them understand how to do a rope border, because of the two colors. Maybe it will help?
Thanks for both replies. The Wilton link give the "how to" and the picture you linked to indydebi, ties it all together. The two colors gives a good visual. I'm anxious to try it. I really like the way it looks.
I always imagine making a stretched out "S" when doing the rope borders. That's the only way I can remember to get the proper shape and lift needed.
