what cake border do you like to make? Also what's easy?
I typically just make the shell border...but i've used to way too often.
What else can I try?
I havent made fondant balls around the cake yet...those look nice in the theme colors of the cake...though i would have to make more fondant and dont have time for that right now....
I almost always use a #12 tip and make a round border. It's clean and doesn't interfere with the design of the cake.
I think the shell border is too busy.
I do alot of borders with a round tip. Sometimes it's small like a bead borded sometimes it's really stretched.
There was a thread back sometime ago that had tons of borders, I'll look for it but I'm not a great searcher.
I'm lazy so I don't do the fondant balls, I just pipe them. Let them sit a minute an slightly push the tips down.
Cool, I actually find somethings!
There is a post within this one with even more.
Happy Border Making!!
The reverse shell is one of my favorites. A really well done shell border can be nice. I hate the quickly and sloppily done not-really-a-shell border that ends up on a lot of grocery store cakes. Playing with borders is one of my favorite things to do. So break out that piping bag and tips and create your own!
I like making rosettes - have used #18 tip and #32 tip. I don't do shell border well but I seem to be happier with my rosettes.
