I am wondering if you can tell me how this technique is done. Best way to describe it is to say it looks like white dots/spots/speckles around the top edge of each teir. I will try to attach a picture of the cake that I am making.

Not the best picture....It can be seen mostly along the top edge of the bottom tier.

Wow what a cool way to look at it. I see those as dots around the bottom of every tier ha!

So there's a coupla different ways.

You can buy little pearls and place them one by one.

You can make pearls out of fondant.

You can make a string of pearls out of fondant with a mold.

And you can also pipe little dots with a like #5 or #9 tube or any round tube. Just squeeze release squeeze release out pops little dots. Cake decorator tubes also called tips.

Oh my gosh I was wrong--I thought you meant the borders!! Duh on me. I can't see the ones you mean but just barely.

Is it crimping?

I have just gotten an answer from a bakery that it may have been done with a sponge and royal icing. Here is another example.

If you look closely you'll see it along top edge of each tier (on right side of picture is mostly clear)

The sponge thing is interesting or maybe just piped?
