Anyone know how to make buttercream frill borders? www.maggieaustincakes.com shows an example of what I'm talking about in her gallery with a gradiant purple cake. Thanks! here's the link

There's a gorgeous gradient lilac one in today's most saved -- you might pm the designer.

Wow, those are some magnificent cakes, I can't believe I've never seen any of them.

Oh I thought they were gum paste of fondant frills. Would love to know how also.

I just ordered some ruffle tips from chef rubber for making BC ruffles. They are #050 and 070. My Cake School has a video using them if you are a member of that site.

Wow, I've also got a post running "what is this covered in?" on this forum with the same question. so far the answers i've gotten from people (who also refer me to the maggieaustin site) is that they are fondant/gumpaste rolled very thin frills. My bride doesn't want fondant, she wants buttercream. I may try the rolled buttercream and see how thin I can get it. I may also play with piping buttercream. I was thinking of a large rose tip small side up, but the ruffle tips may also work. I will continue to check here, if anyone has any ideas?!

thanks - love cakecentral!
