I am totally in love with this border. I know there is a video on youtube ( i know because i've watched it a gazillion times) but it never mentions which tip to use.
Does anyone have any advice? Or any reccomendations where else I can look/learn?

Thank you in advance for any and all help.

I've never done it myself, but I'll take a guess as to how I'd do it:

Small to medium star tip, like a #16 or #17, make an elongated corkscrew with a long tail. Pipe an elongated shell on top of that, also dragging out the tail to the end of the first corkscrew. Take a #2 or #3 in a contrasting color, do a small corkscrew near the beginning of the top shell and drag out to the end of the tail.

If you can, please post the link to the youtube video you mention, I'd like to see it. Thanks.

Looks like a star tip like wilton tip 16, on one a little larger. Just a thought.

Lambeth decorating uses over piping, or stacking layer after layer of icing on one another to achieve a raised icing effect.

Here's a pic of what I've done in this form:

Cool border!! I'd like to see the video too. Can someone post a link for it please?

Rae, that link went nowhere for me. I already know your work is beautiful but I didn't have time to search your gallery. Can you re-post the pic?

Thanks!

Mary Ford, an English decorator has many books out that feature this border.
Two of the books are: "101 Decorating Ideas"
and "Another 101 Decorating Ideas".
Good step-by-step pix for each cake.
Only problem is our tip #s vary from theirs so you will have to do some expirementing.

If you can get your hands on a rope tip, they give the best effect. They are like open star tips, but with much smaller "teeth" or whatever they are called. PME makes them and they are wonderful for this effect. Regular star tips have too large "teeth" for this purpose, especially if you want to overpipe with a round tip (use #3 first, then #2 and then #1 if you want 4 layers).

Hi, CarolAnn.
Pic shows up sometimes, sometimes not. I have it and others in my photos. If you click on the link in the post multiple times, sometimes it will appear.

Tiggy , thanks for posting the link to the video.

I looked on Amazon for the Mary Ford book, it seems to be wriiten in the late 80's, so it wont be easy, but, I will find it.

Thank you again for all the replies so far, its GREATLY appreciated.
