What a great tutorial! I was trying to think up some fancy creation for my sister-in-law's birthday cake... this will look great!

Nice border~ Always could use new ideas and this one is pretty and very versatile. I'm thinking of experimenting with it and maybe use an alternate color for the over-piping... either contrasting or else a lighter or darker shade of the same color would look pretty...

I like how he did the tutorial as well. Yes, it's a simple border, but he went over and over in different ways and even showed what we could be doing wrong. Very good teacher!

I originally thought he provided a recipe.  I have tried multiple buttercream recipes and they all don't look that smooth...even an almost all shortening recipes.  Where can I get a recipe that produces these results?  Thanks!
