The Shell is the most popular icing technique of all. It's the basis for many borders, fleurs de lis and more. Lift the tip only slightly when piping to avoid a bumpy look.

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.

Add that special touch to your cake with your special someone´s name.

Enjoy Your Retirement Cake is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a great cake design and got rave reviews at my mom's retirement party. I altered it a bit by using fondant to cover and gumpaste for the decorations which added some time, but the wow factor was out of this world. Shared the final product on my blog http://cupofsugarpinchoflove.blogspot.com/2015/07/time-for-party-and-cake-of-course.html. Love the Wilton ideas, they are always a hit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my mother in law. This cake was pretty fun to make. I ended up applying the buttercream using the upside down technique so i could get the two seperate colors on easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for a co-workers retirement party. Everyone loved it. The writing on the clock was a little had to get even...had to make icing very thin to work easily.
