Star tip? tight quick pressure then let off. Its hard to see in this picture couldn't tell even with blowing it up.HTH
That is an example of overpiping. The artist used different tips to get the effect by piping a design with one tip. then going over the same design with a new tip.
It looks like they may have used a star tip for the thicker first layer of piping. It looks like it has the ridges along the whole design. The upper layer looks smooth. The overall curve and the piping skills show in the design.

Exactly. Some people refer to this as Lambeth method. It is not done w/just one tip but as many as 5 different ones.
Wow!! I like that technique, if you have a chance to try it please post some pics!
That is definitely overpiping.
I think star tip around the base and on top it looks like overpiping with the rose tip. I personally, do not see a star tip in the top edge.
If want to do the top border, watch the above on youtube. Peggy Addo does a similar border with a 43 closed rope tube (pme)
That is the same video I was looking for. It's star tip scrolls overpiped and then overpiped again with a plain round tube.
You had my curiosity up after looking at your photo, so I looked at some videos. It looks like it is done with a frill tip.
@subaru, I think you're right! I can see that there is pink piped over the white, but underneath definitely looks like the tip you suggested- ruffled at the bottom and smooth at the top (with an overlay of pink). Thanks everyone!
