Okay, so I searched briefly and didn't see anything on how to do the rope border that I see on so many cakes. I'm doing a cake this week that will be a 10" round with basketweave on the sides. I want to finish the tops and bottoms with the rope border I see in the galleries, but have no idea how! Do you just do a series of "Ss" and break in between each one? Or do you go all the way around the cake doing a squiggle line and go back a second time and do the squiggle opposite of your first line--does that make sense? I hope so!
I really want to know how the heck to do this! Also, do I use thin or medium consistency buttercream for this?
Does this help?
The key is to tuck into the first S and then lift up and over the tail.
Perfect! Thank you so much. I didn't know Wilton had techniques on their site! I've only ever browsed in their products to buy...silly me! Thanks again.
Oh be sure to spend some time checking them out. They have quite a few over there.
Glad I could help!
