I am going to guess a tip three or four. Maybe layered. So two layers of white and a layer of pink.

Totally just a guess though.

I'd say a 5 or a 7. I agree it's layered. Probably a 4 on top.

hey, I've seen a video of doing the exact same border on youtube quite some time ago. I tried to find it today for you without any luck. But so far I remember and the best way I can describe it is - using a big tips for shell border keep doing continious shells, gradually decreasing the pressure and then end it with a long sweeping motion. Then draw a line on top of it with a different color icing using a small round tip. Hope that makes a bit sense.

Is this the video you referred to? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-4LtQYgX-s&feature=related It's very similar, but I'm not sure it's exactly like the photo she posted.

yeah JGMB, this is exactly what I was reffering to. Thanks for the link, I have it in my fav now. I thought it's the same technique, only has to do the white piping in double layers and then the single pink/different color piping. Can you not achieve it that way?

The bottom layer of the border looks like it might be a 199, maybe two layers of that. Then a 4 or 5 on the top.

Good luck!

To me, it looks like at least a 9 or 10 piped on in a double layer and then go over it with a different color using a 5 or 6 tip.
