Does anyone know how Tamivo does her borders? It is a great border and I have not been able to replicate. Here is an example.
It looks like the ruffle was done with a petal tip - like a 103, 104 or 124 -and piped similar to how you make pansies.
Did you try PMing her? It would be great if you could get her to come to this thread and tell us her secrets!
I really admire her buttercream work! Beautiful!
I did send her a message a few days ago but unfortunately I did not get a reply. I will try the pansy idea---I was using 104 but probably had too high of an angle on the tip.
The border is the ruffle taught in Wilton's Course3 class with a dot border on top. I teach this to my course 3 students but hate to use it.
it actually looks like.. the border jennifer dontz does on all her cakes.. she is known for it in her home town.. it is a 104 tip..you put the fat end up against the cake..small end out and angle up a little.. you pipe it out and come back in...out and come back in... all around the cake.. the one in course 3.. you rotate 104 up and rotate down..slide the tip.. then rotate up and rotate down again.. and slide again. all around the cake.. i just looked at the dvd again.. this is what she is doing.. hth
Thanks Icer101. That works.
