You don't have to step outside in the cold to catch these snowflakes on your tongue. White buttercream icing is used with several different star and round shaped tips to create snowflakes and dots. Then they are finished with a sprinkle of white sparkling sugar to make them look just as beautiful as the real thing.
Perfect for classic borders or cloudlike decorations, dots are a versatile technique that can be piped in a range of sizes. The dot technique can be used as a simple border for cakes and cookies, as well as for icing cupcakes or piping meringues.
One of the most popular techniques, stars come in a range of sizes and styles. Experiment with open and closed stars for variation in look. The star technique is timeless and can be used as a classic border or as a stunning fill-in for the top of a dessert.
