Bake a Ho-Ho Holly Cane cake for the holidays. Striped design is easy to pipe using simple stars. The holly leaves are iced cookies with piped icing berries. For a flavorful twist, add crushed peppermint candies to your white cake batter!
Cut out, bake and cool 3 holly leaf cookies. Tint full-strength color flow green and outline cookies with tip 3. Let dry, then flow-in with thinned color flow. Let dry. Using full-strength color flow, pipe tip 3 veins on leaves. Let dry.
Lightly ice cake smooth in red and white, following stripe pattern on cake (this will prevent bare spots which may show through large stars). Cover cake with tip 190 red and white stars.
Position leaf cookies and add tip 12 dot berries.
*Note: Combine Christmas Red and Red-Red to achieve color used.
Note: Dough can be tinted with Icing Color. Add small amounts until desired color is reached.
