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.

Characters or designs are often outlined first, then piped in with stars or zigzags. Outlines can also be used for facial features.

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.

Spider-Man Cake is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made the spiderman cake for my son's 5th birthday. First attempt I only greased the pan and when it came time to flip it out, part of the cake stuck to the pan, and the lines were not very noticeable. Second time around I greased and floured and had no issues with removing the cake form the pan. Once I removed it from the pan (after resting approx. 20 min after removing from oven) I let it rest for 20 min on a cooling rack, then put it back into the pan to cool the rest of the way. Once it was cooled all the way through I flipped it out and "tada" the lines were very much present on the cake, making it super easy to decorate! My son and all of his friends LOVED the cake and it was a shame cutting into it; will make it again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I finished my Wilton Basic Decorating class on Wednesday. I made this cake for my Grandson's 4th birthday party on Friday, for Saturday. It was fun, but it is difficult. The lines in the mold, do not show on the cake. I drew the web lines freehand. I think I would have given up if I had not had the class! I am pleased for my first try and I believe my grandson will be thrilled! I am taking the second class and looking forward to it. Jessica, my instructor is awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from With this pan and instructions provided, I was able to replicate this cake and make a little boy really happy. It takes some patience to draw Spiderman but it is well worth it. The cake baked evenly as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this came for my Godson's 3rd birthday. He loved it. Even with a floured pan, the lines are a little hard to see. I just used the insert and free handed the lines. The cake was a hit.
