I have been asked to make this cake and I'm not sure what tip they used to make this border. Does any one know and can you tell me how they did it? It's beautiful. It's from Londoncake.com. They have some beautiful cakes. Thanks

That's done by overpiping with several different tips, in the Lambeth style. One of the CC members has a Lambeth tutorial on her website, maybe it would help http://www.sifbeth.dk/lambethtut.html

what a great web site!

i am pretty sure i have seen on a forum here a link to a tutorial for that exact border. i am getting ready to catch a flight or i would search for it for you. i want to say it was linked on a "favorite borders" thread but it might have been under a "how do i get this border" thread. i am sorry i cannot be of more help than to say i would have seen in in the last 4 months.

Thanks the youtube video will help a lot! Now one more question how did they get the blue on top? Do you think it is painted? To me it doesn't look like they used another tip because the buttercream doesn't come up higher. know what I mean? thanks

Maybe a #1 or #2 round? Whatever was used, that decorator has amazing skill.
