Chocolate Style Effect

We start with a blank 400x300px canvas, and insert text:

Now, we are going to add a Drop Shadow, then add the following styles:


Next, we will create a chocolate icing-type border to the text. Select the Pen tool and draw a border.

Then go to the Paths Window (Window > Paths), and choose the Brush tool. Choose a size that you want the border thickness to be, then right-click the Path we just created (in the Paths Window) and choose Stroke Path. You can try both the Simulate Pressure checked and unchecked, see which you prefer.
