Additional Information

Step 1

Several days in advance: Use royal icing to make 6 snowflake arms and center ball. Copy Snowflake Arms pattern and tape onto cake boards; cover with waxed paper. Using royal icing and tip 8, outline 1 snowflake arm at a time; immediately sprinkle on Sparkling Sugar. Excess sugar can be collected and reused. Repeat until you have completed 6 arms (make extras to allow for breakage). Use tip 1A to pipe a 1 1/2 in. diameter ball; immediately sprinkle on Sparkling Sugar. Let all pieces dry 1 to 2 days. Carefully remove arms from waxed paper by sliding a small spatula underneath.

Step 2

Bake and cool cake. Position on cut-to-fit cake board; place on cooling grid set over drip pan. Cover with Ganache Glaze; reserve any leftover glaze. Let set then position on plate or foil-covered board.

Step 3

Whip remaining glaze that has thickened to use as icing; pipe tip 8 ball bottom border. Position snowflake arms directly on cake top. Position ball in center.

The ball shape makes bold borders and is the first step to learn for figure piping. Vary the basic look by adding stars, dots or spirals on the ball shapes.

Characters or designs are often outlined first, then piped in with stars or zigzags. Outlines can also be used for facial features.
