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.

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 The instructions are very easy to follow. Took about an hour to finish decorating. Everyone enjoyed the decoration and received rave reviews from my friends. The tools that were recommended were easy to handle and I have made this cake several times. You can change the colors to your own liking, maybe a gold in place of the kelly green for the middle outline.
