AI always seem to go way too slow in color choice when I need to write and do border on a cake. What's your go to formula? I typically like a base under lettering. Is your border the same as the base? Dark or light color on top of base?

just depends entirely on what mood i'm in and what look i'm after--i like it all at one time or another y'know? now that i'm thinking about it -- i like a striped bag for writing and then i can use that to accent my borders too--


best to you

btw- a striped bag is where you pipe a nice bead of colored icing in a bag then fill the bag with the contrast icing--usually white--then when you write you have a beautiful stripe sitting right on there--


love it
