Star Fill In
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) with tip about 1/8 in. to 1/4 in. above surface. Squeeze the bag to form star. Stop pressure and pull tip straight up and away.
Continue piping additional rows, adjusting the tip position so that the stars are piped in between the stars of the previous row to fill in the cake surface without any gaps.
Maintaining the same pressure when piping the icing will assure that the stars are identical in shape and size.
Change star size by using smaller or larger star tips.
Because these close-together stars require so much piping from the same bag, it’s a good idea to keep replenishing the icing. Replenish icing when it gets soft to prevent stars from being poorly defined.
