I looked I don't see any piping I think the border lace might me a push mold
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.
Sorry..didn't mean to dupe...was typing my post when Iamelms sent hers....but looks like we're on the same thought process!
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.
thanks to everybody who answered my questions i really appreciated your kindness...annacakes the one who made the designs of the cake contacted me and she gave me all the instructions i needed.she is a nice lady...thank you annacakes.
so did she pipe it or did she use a mold?
i would be interested to know for certain ,lol.
