Borders We Love (new)

post #1 of 159
Thread Starter 
I'm going through my "watched topics" list and finding many that are no longer in existence due to the recent crash and don't come up in a search as already being restarted. I'd like to start a few of these again since we have had so many great ideas.

Let's start a new Borders We Love thread.

I'll share two of Cakery's that I like. These borders are always bright and cheery.

I love the white, bottom border on this one, the way it climbs up the side of the cake, by cakesoutsidethebox: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1160771

Oh, I really hope this topic gets a lot of replies. After the Wilton courses, I find that the shell, start borders are pretty much the standards. I am always looking for new border ideas to try. Sorry, I don't have anything to offer here, but I am looking forward to what experienced decorators have to add.

Uuuuuuuuugggggg icon_sad.gif
With all the problems I keep having that the pages of this site won't completely load for me I cannot see any of these creatons icon_sad.gif

Something I have often told my students is to take a day and ONE tip - say today's tip is 102. Now do *every* technique you know with that tip. Dots, stars, zigzag, shells and/or whatever. Now give the tip a 1/2 turn and do it all again. Some tips don't lend themselves to turning - they are the same no matter how you hold them like rounds & star tips but others will give you a completely different look.
See what you can design that is different & unique icon_smile.gif

The other tip is to get yourself a copy of "the Wilton Way of Cake Decorating" Volume 3 - often called a complete Encyclopedia. It's out of print but often available on eBay. There are pages and pages of wonderful ideas in it on making flowers and borders.

my favorite border is the one CAMBO does with the big open star tip, she makes a big border and then adds sprinkles sometimes... her borders are awesome!

Here is only a sample, she does many other looks too.. I am speaking of the pink border.

These are all great ideas. I need to make a "passed state boards" cake this weekend so this gives me some great ideas to try.
