The Zigzag is a popular way to fill in outlined areas, perfect for ribbed sweater and cuff effects. You can also use tight zigzags to cover the entire side of your cake—they look great!

Characters or designs are often outlined first, then piped in with stars or zigzags. Outlines can also be used for facial features.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy! I bought this pan to make a birthday cake for my 10 year old nephew. It was a raving success! Followed the instructions implicitly. The recipe for the chocolate buttercream was fabulous as well. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing My best friend loves everything Star Wars. I saw this pan and knew I had to try it. I've never done anything more than a basi frosting on a cake and was a little nervous. It turned out Amazing for my first decorative cake. I was able to frost it in only 20 minutes too!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total disaster I followed the instructions to a T - used solid shortening and dusted with flour etc. Only thing I didn't do is use a boxed mix because I could never feed that to my guests. But I used a moist recipe. Let it cool in the pan, cut down around the edges. A chunk in the middle came out and the rest is still glued in. I am trying to scrape it out to see if I can build a cake out of a pile of crumbs and ice it together. Total disaster and I am really disappointed.
