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.

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

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for my daughter's ice skating show to share with her friends and coaches, they loved it and I made it a white boot with a gold blade because that is what she has and everyone was very impressed and asked me to make it again for the coaches meeting.
