Help with Border Please!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

I would like some direction on how to make the border around this photo. I am not positive how to do it. Any help or links for help would be greatly appreciated.  - Ang

Looks like they did a build-up using shells. If you look toward the top corner of the cake, you can see the backside of the border. It looks like several small shell shapes, building to a larger, elongated shell. Then it looks like they piped small, close together wiggles on the top ridge of the topmost shell.

 

I know that is not the most technical, but I hope it might help.

I believe it's called overpiping.

There. Their. They're not the same.

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

I think there was a tutorial here on cakecentral on something similar recently. If you choose blog from the menu at the top and then scroll down you should find it!

Over-piping! Thank you, that was killing me, I couldn't remember what it was called! Ronald Winbeckler has a pretty good craftsy class on piping borders that covers it really well. That is where I remember seeing the technique from.

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Yes, you were!

I just love that couple! They are both immensely talented artists, I just wonder why they chose food as their medium of choice and continue to use all shortening and artificial flavor... bleh! Part of the art is its edibility and deliciousness, IMHO. Yes, the Mona Lisa is grand, but you can't eat it. I feel the same way about their cakes, after they posted their icing tutorial. I feel like they have been lying to me, lol.
