The star tip creates the most celebrated, easily accomplished decorations! The pull-out star technique can be used for fun, furry creatures, or for textured hair for your cakes.

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.

Hobgoblin Hug! Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for my granddaughters 1st Birthday, it was a big hit. Thank goodness I did a trial run 5 days beforehand because even though I followed the instructions, the cake exploded from the steam when I took it out of the pan to cool. Found out on Friday from Wilton customer service the instructions had been revised. Redid it on Friday for Sundays party, was a bit fearful of transporting it so I assembled and finished icing at on site. Turned out amazing.
