I'm not quite sure what you are asking, but here is the tip, in cause someone else may be able to answer.

I can't quite picture what you mean..."it has that lacy look but right in the middle of the flow a part will go straight"... Are you using it to make a border?

I always thought this was a drop flower sort of tip...it looks like the sun to me. That's how I have used it. Maybe I am missing something somewhere.

It looks to me like one I would use to do shell border.....I don't think I must know which tip you are using for something to be in the center. But this will bump it for you

No one said you can't use it for a border. Tips are capable of doing whatever you can make them do. Looking at the tip, I think if I used masking tape to cover 1/3-1/2 of the holes on one side, it might be easier to make a border with it. Tips are tools. What we do with them is up to us. Just because no one else has ever made a border with that tip doesn't mean you can't be creative and figure out a way to make one! thumbs_up.gif

I once saw a cake decorating contest during a TV show about the OSSAS. Decorators were given ONE tip and told to use it in as many ways possible to decorate a cake in a limited time. It was a #88, which is a combo of a rose tip with an open star at one end. Bronwen Webber won because, using masking tape, she alternately blocked off portions of the tip... to create roses, a shell border, writing, etc. It was a awesome example of creativity and ingenuity.

tip in question was originally intended to make little borders on cake that would just fit around a birthday cake candle -- note the blank area -- and then the ring?

make the border, stick in the candle and on with the bonfire (well at least in my case!)
