Vertically Ruffled Buttercream

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Does anyone know which tip was used to get this effect?  Is it a petal tip with a separate round tip to make the squiggles next to the ruffle or is there one tip that can do this?  Any help would be appreciated!

Pretty sure it's a standard round tip next to the ruffle.

You could always ask Erin what she did, maybe she'll see the comment if you ask on her picture.

Thanks!  I've been creeping her Facebook page and she explained that she used a petal tip for a cake similar to this one but I couldn't figure out the squiggle.  Since the photo on Cake Central was posted back in 2012 I figured it would be a long shot to get a reply.  Guess I'll just experiment and see what happens. :)

Wilton has a tip 86 that pipes a ruffle and a border at the same time, but its a star tip, not plain. Maybe you can find one similar with a round tip, now that you know what it looks like. Ateco also makes fancy ruffle tips.

The squiggle is a round tip 3 or 4.

I agree with Annie and AZCouture!! Round tip is for the squiggles and petal tip is for the ruffles.

Never seen that tip before, that's pretty cool.

I have a whole slew of tips like that and I've never used them. I have the old master tip set from like 15 years ago. I seem to go for the same old tips every time. I should experiment more!

I have that tip (along with a hundred other Wilton tips that rarely get used)  It makes a cute swag on the sides of a cake if you do the up/down wiggle while your swagging it.  For some reason I use it on Chocolate frosted cakes mostly.  I guess I just like lots of chocolate icing.

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something

i cant tell what the sides are, but you can get the look on the top with a petal tip with what i call the folding technique. as you squeeze, pull forward and push back to create a soft "fold" and keep even pressure on it, not stopping or else the icing with break off and 9 times out of ten not fixable unless you're really good with butter cream. (i am not lol)

 

lots of loves and luck
