Can anyone tell me which tip/techniques is used to get this border?
There appears to be an error with that link.
My bad. Not used to posting here and having trouble with the format. Here is the website and the first picture is the border I am referring to. I am also adding an attachment.
audairymaid: I went to look for the tip that I thought it might be, but I have evidently hidden it from myself. What comes to mind is either an 81 or 91, but since I can't find it I couldn't say for sure. The other two tips that I found that might produce something similiar were a 61 and and 86. Good luck. I was practicing some borders not very long back and evidently didn't get all my tips washed and back in place. I will have to find it. Good luck. I am sure that there are quite a few on here that could tell you for sure.
If you're refering to the cake titled Polka Dot Princes It's really hard to be sure but I'd say they made a 'U' movement using tip 79 and overpiped it a couple of times - each time with a little less pressure. A 79 tip looks like a 1/2 moon or a smile.
That's what I was thinking kakeladi.
audairymaid: I was looking for another tip for another person on a different forum subject and saw that #86-#88 all seemed to produce that look. So one of those 3 tips ought to give you that look you want. I saw the samples that they gave for those tips and it was the same. I would think that if you wanted a fuller ruffle look that you could move that part of the tip a little more exaggerated like and you would get a fuller ruffle. Best wishes.
jules makes a good point. No need to be sure of what tip to use. Make something similar with what you have A nice ruffle w/similar look can be made w/tip 86 thru 88 or 103-104 and even 67 thru 70!
It's called practice, practice, practice
Get out your tips and use *one* each day. Make every movement you have learned with that one tip. Hold it in different positions and do a zigzag; rosette, shell, line; etc, etc. You will be surprised at some of the nice borders you come up with
