I am going to be doing scroll work on my daughter's birthday cake(Thanks Lace...aka Sugah Sweet...).I use the WBH house Buttercream icing so it is non crusting and not forgiving if you make a mistake or touch it.How do I make good scrolls which look full and which round tip is better for scroll work.I don't want it tiny so tip 1 or 2 or even 3 I think is too small.

Help anyone..I have never been good a scrolls!! I can't use a pattern either... icon_cry.gif

Depending on how intricate the piping is I always use either #2 or #3. You could get away with a #4 if the scrolls are "loose" and not tight. I would say that 90% of the time I use a #3 though...

Good Luck!

I totally agree... 90% of what I do is a #3 as well.... even pressure, and I find they look much better if you move quicker than taking it slow (if that makes sense,lol) If you move too slow they aren't as even, for me anyway.

I agree, move quickly and they will be more even....
