I need the affect of roping around a Marine Corps emblem. Which tip do I use or do you suggest a different approach?

The way I do a rope is with a round tip and make an "s" that lays down and overlap them starting with the bottom of the previous "s" to make the next one.. You may be able to find the instructions on theWwilton website or Youtube.


Here is a link to a cake that I made with a rope border. I used a tip 22 star for it.

You could also use fondant/gumpaste - just use an extruder or roll out two long, very thin "sausages" - line them up, then twist from each side in oposite directions. The tighter you twist the tighter and more "rope like" your rope will be in the end icon_biggrin.gif Then just place the rope around the emblem.

Thanks ladies! I will have to try both suggestions and practice, practice, practice. It is fun but worrisome to learn new things!
