Hey everyone,
I am after ideas for different cake boarders - I have the shell down pat and am wondering what else I can do- any pics and ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

My current favorite is the reverse shell, i'm fairly new, so I'm sorta playing around with borders that I know and messing with the lenght between shells and stuff. I really want to try the rope border, but it elludes me, can someone explain it alittle?

To do a rope border pipe an S shape -- more elongated though and place the tip under the left side and pipe over making another S shape. Remember to keep it tight.

Practice, practice, practice! thumbs_up.gif

My fave for gals or wedding cakes is the reverse shell.
For guys and the basketweave, it is definitely the rope, with a star tip.

I am not sure if I can explain the rope border but its my FAVORITE! I can do it so easily. I can not thumbsdown.gif do the shell or reverse shell icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif .

I will TRY to explain:

I start with a crooked "S" with the top over more to the right. Then I start again in the lower part of the "S" & make sure the icing "goes under" that part. icon_confused.gif I am not too sure if that was a good explaination.

Can you explain the shell to me? I praticed last weekend. My shells were wavy icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

I like the crown border combined with drop strings. It's shown on a few of the cakes in my photos.

I'll try my best, but it's confusing. Instead of thinking of it as an "S" laying on its side, I think of it more as a check mark without any sharp angles. icon_confused.gif Be sure to tuck your tip when you begin the next "check". I'm sorry that I can't explain it better. icon_sad.gif Don't give up; you'll get it!

thank you so much for those links - I am guessing I will be making lots of cakes to practice on - hubby wont be complaining neither will work.

If you don't want to make a cake each time you want to practice your borders, you can just turn your cake pan upside down and use that as your model. icon_smile.gif

Wow, All4Cakes, I love your crown and string borders. I wish I knew even where to start making something that nice...........is it hard to get that good.
