Buttercream icing (medium consistency)
Fit decorating bag with tip 18 and fill 1/2 full or less with medium consistency icing.
Hold the bag at 90° angle (straight up) to the surface with tip between 1/8 in. and 1/4 in. above surface.
Stop pressure and pull tip straight up and away. After squeezing out a star, be sure to stop pressure completely before you pull your tip away. This will give you a perfectly formed star shape, without peaks.
See your project instructions for the correct size tip to use.
For a small star, try using Tip 13.
For a larger standard star, try using Tip 22.
For an extra-large star, try using tip 1M or 4B.
