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.

Contentedly Curled Cat Cake is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made this for my daughters birthday. She wanted different colors so we used white for the stripes and black all over. For the whiskers I used black string licorice. Made it with golden yellow cake recipe and not only was it cute but tasted good too.
