you could use a string of black licorice or just do some practicing and pipe it--


you can wrap a clean fresh cash register tape around the cake and pipe using that as a guide--depending on the type of icing you're using--

AThanks..... the liquorice sounds like an idea..... why is lemon juice added to icing

lemon juice? for flavor and it's added to royal icing sometimes--not sure exactly what you mean--
