Fanci-Foil Wrap

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent but lacking some instructions Very pleased with this cake pan and the instructions that came with it. However the instructions do not include a template for the Minnie Mouse bow. Nothing found on an Internet search either. For a beginner it is painstakingly slow. Much time is spend using the star method for the icing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made the Minnie Mouse for my friend Lynne's daughter's birthday. I was thrilled with the results. I had never done a Minnie Mouse cake. I used glitter gel instead of gum paste for the polka dots. It looked so cute and saved me some money. I used butter cream frosting that I bought from Fred Meyer's bakery. It's tasted good but it was too soft for decorating. It didn't hold it's form as well as I would have hoped. I would suggest trying a couple different frostings before you make your cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my neice's birthday party. As a beginner I was very pleased with the results. This is a good cake for a beginner to start with to build confidence. The directions are easy to follow. It was my first attempt at making a birthday cake and using a character cake pan. Stepping out of my comfort zone :) and using what I learned in the decorating basics course I made a two layer vanilla/chocolate marble cake with a chocolate filling. I made Minnie's bow using the candy clay instead of fondant. (Wilton's candy clay recipe using pink and white candy melts) I used star tip #16 and the multi star tip to decorate my cake. Started with the multi star tip and then used #16 to fill in my gaps. It was a fun cake to decorate and it gave me a chance to practice the skills that I have learned so far in the Wilton Courses taken at my local Michaels Store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cake, mine looked almost exactly like the picture. I couldn't find the light copper icing color at my local store so I did one small toothpick dip of orange and one small dip of brown and it came out great. For the black, I mixed cocoa powder in the frosting first and then black coloring, it also came out great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First cake I decorated and I am amazed at how beautiful it turned out!!! It was pretty easy, followed directions and it looked pretty much like the picture. I used ivory for Minnie's face. I would suggest you to try and make this cake, it will turn out pretty much like the sample picture!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this for my nieces 2nd birthday. It was generally easy to follow. I had a hard time getting the proper skin tone with the copper colouring. I also had to play with my printer to get the bow template large enough to cover the cake. Overall, I would use this pan again.
