Add rich tones and subtle character to cookies just by adding Wilton Icing Colors to dough before baking!

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.

There'll Be a Hot Time! Cake is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my son's 6th b-day. It was a hit. It took about 8hrs to complete, however it looked amazing and tasted great. I used a box mix for the cake, and homemade buttercream frosting, as I find it is easier to pipe the homemade frosting, instead of using parchment paper for the cloud I used rollout cookie for that as well, the only negative thing is my spikes weren't as easy to spot on my cake I think they came out to small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The cookie dough eyes flattened out as they were baking so I used a mini muffin pan to bake the eyes in and it worked out great for me. I also make a cookie for the flame instead of using paper. This was very time consuming but I a good and fun time was had by all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter made this for her cousin's birthday. The only catch is it takes so much patience to do all the stars! But the design is so creative and cute. Everyone lived it.
