It looks to me like they used a #16 star tip to create a shell boarder over maybe a #1 or #3 round tip that they drew the loops. HTH!

Take a #3 tip and use a zig zag motion to do a small, tall, small motion. Getting this consistant will be a little bit of a challenge. Then it is followed by a small shell border on top..maybe a 16 or 17. HTH.

I have an idea. The cake was done by annacakes, so why don't you send her a little message and ask how it was done.

That looks like a fondant lace mold trim to me - laid down next to the cake with a shell border piped on top of it next to the edge of the cake. (but then my eyes are not what they used to be either)

i think you might be right, if you look really closly at the little "m" type shapes on the board. they are not all even, i think if you use a no. 0 or a no.1 piping tube and pipe them over waxed paper (similar to lace work peices)
, let them dry and use the piped edge over the top to hold them in place, they should work ok
i hope it all work out for you which ever way you choose.
