Decorate bowling ball cookie. Use
spatula and black icing to ice finger hole

finger hole outlines. Use tip 3 and black
icing to outline finger holes. Position cookie
on cake. Use tip 16 and black icing to fill in
ball with stars.
Complete cake. Use tip 3 and black icing
to pipe motion lines and print message. Use

The star tip creates the most celebrated, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated edges of the star tip make ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out. Because fill in requires so much piping from the same bag, keep replenishing icing in bag.
