AHow do I get a large cake borders that are not shell, stars, or dots. I am looking for a huge border that's a swirl. Pics would help!

When I want a large border I use a large star tip (open or closed, depends on the look you want) and make like a snail.  Something like the bottom boarder on this cake.

Here is a swirl rosette. She is using a smaller star tip but if you want a bigger border you can use a 1m, 2D tip or 199 tip which will make bigger swirls.

You can try the swirls that go up and down with any size tip. I used the same one to swirl on cupcakes. Forgot the tip #. It is like 1A or 40? Lol! Sorry but I included a pic. Good luck.

@VISTA This is EXACTLY what I am looking for! Can you tell me what tip you use and how you get the design to come out? 

Thanks!

 

Thanks to the others as well! They look great

Do you know what Tip you used and how would I get it to come out like this?

AYou can use any large star 2D 1M.

It's a kinda curve. Tip on board pipe up and over down. Play with it and you'll see it's fairly easy.

I'm sure there is a link to Wilton or something showing this technique.

You can also do a search using these terms:  youtube, rose cake

 

and you'll see 4+ videos showing how to do this technique.
