In advance: Make wings. Add 1/2 teaspoon Gum-Tex to 4 oz. fondant. Tint black. Roll out 3/8 in. thick and using pattern, cut 2 wings. Insert 2 lollipop sticks 2 1/2 in. deep into flat edge of one wing. Let wings dry.
Prepare cake using firm-textured batter such as pound cake. Fill prepared pan and core, bake and cool following directions. Insert baked core into cake body, attaching with icing, and position on prepared board. Trim off ears, arms, muzzle, tail, back of legs. Ice head smooth. Tint 3 oz. fondant yellow; shape top and bottom beak sections. Cut two lollipop sticks to 3 in. and insert into base of beak sections; insert into cake. Using tip 4, pipe in eyes (smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch); outline eyebrows. Cover body and feet with tip 18 stars. Ice cone smooth; position on head. Cut a strip of fondant 1/2 in. wide and wrap around cone. Add tip 18 pull-out star fringe at tip and base of cone. Trim lollipop sticks on wing to 5 in. long, insert into cake.

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.
