I like it.; it's pretty and it's very neat. It does look good enough to sell in my opinion! May I ask what tip you used?

I agree. I think it's very pretty and professional looking. I'd pay for it.

It looks nice.. some scrolls look a bit awry.. a tiny wee bit, but otherwise it's not as bad as you are describing it to be!! icon_biggrin.gif

Ditto on pj22. It's good - just tighten it up a bit.

Your piping is very good! Of course over time it will only get better, I think you are well on your way to having perfect piping thumbs_up.gif

I wish I could pipe that good. Yes, there are a few wavery lines, but overall I think it looks very nice, you could def sell that one! I read that if you use a thicker tip for your piping it might be a bit easier. Good job! thumbs_up.gif

Very pretty! I love the technique - may have to try that one day...

OH, also, you might want to try using a hot scraper to smooth your buttercream. (Actually get it really hot in a pot of boiling water). Then finish up your smoothing with a piece of typing paper to take out those paper towel marks.
