Fanci-Foil Wrap

Fanci-Foil Wrap

The Shell is the most popular icing technique of all. It's the basis for many borders, fleurs de lis and more. Lift the tip only slightly when piping to avoid a bumpy look.

The Zigzag is a popular way to fill in outlined areas, perfect for ribbed sweater and cuff effects. You can also use tight zigzags to cover the entire side of your cake—they look great!

Pipe dots for flower centers, faces, figure piping and border effects. When making large dots, lift the tip as you squeeze to allow icing to fill out completely.

The star tip creates the most popular, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated edges of the star tip makes ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out. Use for borders, details such as buttons and facial features, flower centers, filling in cakes baked in shaped pans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake was made for my grandson's birthday and he was really into construction work and he helped me also so it meant a lot more to him and to his parents, he got to eat whatever he wanted on the cake and the rest was for everyone else. It is a challenge for new cake decorating but it was a joy to learn to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for a little boy's birthday and it was a big hit. It was fairly easy to make. However, instead of using brown sugar and cinnamon sugar for the dirt, I used crushed graham crackers. It isn't so sweet and gritty that way. And crushed graham crackers make fantastic dirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This idea is great. Instead of using the bear pan, in place of that i put a huge to tractor. Also, i used oreo crumbs in place of brown sugar and it REALLY looked like dirt
