Ok, this may be a silly question, because it looks so simple, but I'm still pretty new to the decorating scene.....so I am curious how do I go about doing this border? The picture says it is buttercream, I usually just do a bead border with a larger round tip, but these are so perfectly round!! I just don't get it! Any Ideas? icon_redface.gifImage

Ps: Sorry bout the huge picture!!

You just pipe them on. Practice!

I was afraid that's what I was going to be told! Mine just look so flat compared to these

Make sure your icing is not to thin and when you pipe them on try pulling up a bit as you pipe. If you get a little nub on it wait til it crusts a bit and then "tap" it down with your fingertip! HTH

Its really just like a shell border, but with a round tip. I don't believe it was done as individual dots straight on if that makes sense.

You could make them out of fondant and use a mold...

I think this was make of out fondant using a mold. The beads look awfully shiny and the little bit of size differences would be how the mold was created. There does not appear to be seperations between the beads. IMHO.

Thank goodness for the huge picture. I enlarged it. I agree that it's a mold. Chocolate fondant pearls made with a mold.

They look attached. Definitely the pearl mold, made with fondant.
