Hi,

I love the border on the cake shown below, and pm'd the creator (gwu90) a while ago and also asked the question on some of her cake photo comments, but I have never gotten a response. Could anyone tell me how this is done or what tip is used?

Thanks in advance!!!

I've been noticing the "ruffly" looking border lately too. I hope someone can answer your question. I'm a bit curious about it too.

You can do a basic ruffle using a rose tip. This one looks a bit more detailed, like the petals on an Apple Blossom .... http://www.wilton.com/technique/Apple-Blossoms .

Its a little hard to tell but it looks like tip 104...maybe layed flat to achieve that look...

It is done with tip 104. Is almost the same tchnique used to make pansies appleblossoms and those other flowers. I called them mouse ears, but put together one after the other one looks like a ruffle.

There was a thread back in March 2006, with a photo of Sharon's (sugarshack) cake...asking about a border she did like this one.

I do this border also, but it's easlier for me to just quote her:

hello everyone; that is my cake! I was told by a friend you needed some help with the borders!
the bottom border was invented by Jennifer Dontz. the leafy part is done with a tip 104, fat side to the cake, the tip laying on its side; squeeze hard and then go in and out away from cake, toward cake... etc. then pipe over that with a star tip or whatever you like. the top border is done with a tip 98 ( like a half moon shell shape) and it's one motion, kind of a reverse shell motion, and on the down stroke you let it droop over the side. I dont know if I made myself clear or not, but I hope that helped some!!! SHaron (Unquote)

Hope this helps.
God Bless,
Sharon

Thanks so much for your responses! I looked at the directions on how to make a pansy/apple blossom and just can't visualize how to do that as a border......(sorry--I'm a total visual learner!!! icon_lol.gif )

Edna, btw--I have spent a good part of the afternoon today watching your YouTube tutorials--they are so awesome and it's so nice of you to take the time to do those! Now, how about a tutorial on this border!!!! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Thanks so much for the info, grannys3angels! We must've been responding at the same time, so I didn't see your answer initially. The directions are helpful, and now that you post them I do recall seeing that border on some of Sharon's cakes too. I think it's so beautiful!

Thanks again!
