I love the way this border looks but I'm not positive on the tip used - I believe it's either a 2D or 1M. Also, how to get the icing so nice and crisp!

I must point out that I've found this picture from a set of great cake pics by a user on Flickr - made by "Jens Creations". This appears to be her "style" of decorating from the looks of her cakes....and who knows, she may be a user on here!! (Jen - are you here??) So, I'd like to try this style and hope this is okay to post her pic here. (someone please tell me if I'm going about this the wrong way) And yes, I've tried to contact her through Flickr but she hasn't responded.

Yah, it looks to have just 5 or 6 prongs on it so it must be a super large one.

i did a border similar to this. i used 1M. its in my pics. pink, black and white cake, happy birhtday. to get the icing to stay up i just used a firmer icing.
its a great border to use especially when hiding some flaws.
