'Tis the season for grad and brides, so it's time to bring this back to the surface for those of us struggling with ideas. Thanks for the all the links! I think I've finally found one for my cake this week.

Though some might think it old-fashioned, I like the Wilton triple-bead border. I think it looks really elegant! Here are the instructions from the 1990 yearbook: "Using tip 5, pipe a line of frosting around cake base. Pipe beads on the outer side of the line. Then pipe the second row next of cake. Add third row in line center."

I used it on both of these cakes:

Love it! I just saw a similar border in a 1970-something Wilton book, except the beads were off-set from one another. They called it a popcorn border. I'm doing a grad cake that has 3 school colors and the triple-bead border would be perfect to incorporate all 3 colors!

Awesome thread! I think I added a whole page to my favorites! And bookmarked some You Tube videos too! By the time I get to the bordering of a cake_ I am usually ready to be done with it-- thanks for reminding me that I'm not quite finished yet!

I was just able to snag a used copy online for $28 -- I can hardly wait until it gets here!!!!! Thanks for the suggestion, Kakeladi!

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