Cake #4: Striping

This is my 4th cake ever. I wanted to play with striping the bag since my instructor brought it up in my class last week. ( Wilton course 1)

I am just learning to pipe borders and actually we haven't even had that class yet, but I figured I would try it so ignore the different colors on the bottom shells. I kept turning the bag and didn't realize that would have an effect until I was finished. LOL!

I normally ( well, ok once before) make Wilton Buttercream but I wanted to try to use their tub icing.

Looks great to me. You got your base coat of icing so smooth!

It looks great, if you want your border to look the same all the way, here's an easy tip. Keep the number on your tip facing up.

Thanks for the comments. Yep, Vitade, I figured out the tip thing AFTER I was already finished with the border. LOL! A bit too late but it was practice so I kinda wanted to see how I would like it best, up or down. I think from now on, I will use a pratice board and get some of the striping on that until I get the effect I'm looking for and then I will put that on the cake. Thanks again! Great advice.
