I'm sure there is a name for that border but I called it a pulled dot or running dot border.
I'd use a wider round tip, maybe #5 or #6, the same way as you would to do a shell border. Squeeze, build up buttercream to that rounded dot, then pull out, releasing pressure as you pull.

Hope that helps!

I do one at the end of this video, I think it was a size 7 tip:

I would pipe it like a shell border but with the round tip, obviously.

Does that help?

Edited to add - obviously refering to the using a round tip not the method to make the border.

You can use any round tip to make a pearl border in any size you want. For that one they range beeween 5 to 9..But you can go bigger or smaller. Is basically almost like doing a shell but with a roun tip and dont let it get too long unless you want a running pearl. The trick is to make them all the same size. That takes practice..

It's basically the same technique as the shell border but using a round tip.

Serious-cakes you are a pipping flower specialist!!

I have just watched your video in youtube and you seem so precise! I am amazed on how you have been able to match the tips to the type of flowers you saw in the pharmacy book! thumbs_up.gif

Does this get called "snail trail" sometimes too? I've used my #12 tip to do this; I like everthing over the top! icon_biggrin.gif

How ironic! I was just looking at a cake the other day with this border and was wondering how to do it! DelectableCreations, you must be some kind of psychic. icon_biggrin.gif
