Hi, am newish here!

Just wondering if anyone minds telling me how to do the pretty piped border I've seen on quite a few cakes on here?
It looks a bit like folded petals coming out from the base of the cake.

Thanks to everyone on here for all their amazingly inspiring cakes and ideas. icon_smile.gif

Do you have a picture of what you mean? That will help the experts tell you how it's done once they know exactly what you are talking about. Notice I didn't say I was an expert. LOL But I figured I would help you out the best I could. icon_smile.gif

It's a beautiful cake called 'steel magnolias' by gwu90

It is done with tip 352 (leaf tip). Here is a picture of a cake that I did using that tip.

From looking at the photo, it doesn't look like a #352. Why not pm gwu90 since it is her cake? I would also like to know.

Thanks rockysmom - your cake is beautiful!

It doesn't look like the same edging though unless its the same tip used closer together. will pm gwu90 and let you know what she says.
