Can anyone explain the frills tubes/tips? They look so odd. I wonder what the icing effect is when these tips are used?

I saw them as I was shopping for the tiny Supatube tips.

The tips make nice frills. You use a lot of even pressure and pipe the border. The tip makes the border frill on its own. The result is a border which is frilly and looks like several tips were used. It takes a while to get the hang of it but after much practice a nice border may be achieved.

Does anyone have pictures of either the tips, or what effect they produce? I see the word 'frills' and I'm all over it! I'm such a girly-girl geek! LOL

I'm with Callyssa....I need a picture, since frills sound like just my type of thing!

I hope you can see it. It's the side boarder. When I bought these tips there were 5 tips and all do different things. I've only used this tip. It is hard to get used to but produces excellent results.

Hmmmm.....I think I may have this tip?! I have a very odd shaped tip that I don't know how to use; I'm not even sure why I bought it! I'll have to get it out to play now! Thank you for the picture!

As the OP, yes, that is the set I am wondering about. I wanted to see how the icing looks when you use these tips.
