Hi all, I tried pm'ing the person that made this cake with no response. So if anyone could tell me how to do these hearts(what tip to use) I'd be very grateful.

It looks like just a round tip that was used. We did this in one of the Wilton classes (the first one, I think). Just use a small round tip, squeeze and pull down for half the heart, then squeeze and pull down for the other half. HTH!

it looks like just a plain round tip like a 3 or 4. You pipe a simple circle blob and pull it down to get a tail and then do a second one next to it mirroring the fist and continue the tail down to the cake base. The icing looks fairly loose so the two heart halves flow together.

I agree with Starkie. There is als a tip that will make the heart shape. But I think Starkie is right, because of the lines.

I have a heart tip and the round tips actually work better for a heart.

There is a heart tip... I have it but haven't used it yet.
