It appears to be a large leaf tip, the leaf tip that has two sharp points on it, not the flat one. I would line my pastry bag half with the teal and half witht he purple then I would make the motion that you do when doing the shell border with the leaf tip....

Not that I am a pro - but I do believe that the top border and the bottom are the same....a reverse shell - just different tip sizes. to get the double color you just line your icing bag with both colors half on one side or half on the other. Good luck!

Looks like a large star tip, like for piping whipped cream.

I have done the double color icing before, so I know that you have to fill one half of your piping bag one color icing and the second half with the other color icing making sure that both colors go down to the tip. As for the tip used, I'd say maybe a Wilton 2D??

Hope that works. Good Luck. icon_smile.gif

It's a reverse shell with double icing....load two seperate colors in one bag and use a large shell tip (open star). It is an awesome technique!

I'd guess it was 1M and the bag filled as described by Cakediva73
