It looks like a rope border, just in a circle. You just use a star tip for the wreath and then probably tip 2 for the bow and dots. Just make sure that you have thick RI so that it will hold it's shape.

Ohh those are too cute!

I would take the e-motion border (http://www.wilton.com/technique/e-Motion) and pipe it in a tight circle. You can do it on wax paper, parchment paper or plastic wrap. Since I really like plastic page protectors I'd actually probably trace some circles on a piece of paper and slide that into the plastic page protector and tape that to a cake board. I use the page protectors cause it usually pops right off with out any problems.

I'm glad you posted this, because it is such a simple and easy idea, and would be great for quick holiday cupcakes. You could also pipe some trees too, if you wanted a little variaty.

Thank you for the help! It seems simple enough...trace it and let it dry. I also wanted to try a holly leaf.

I don't know how big your cake balls are, but I like to use the small/mini cookie cutters for outlines to fill in on cupcakes. icon_smile.gif

Add a little powder sugar or corn starch. I haven't used her icing so I don't know what the amounts are.
