Step 2

Ice cakes. Prepare buttercream icing following recipe directions. Tint portions dark rose, light rose and black. Use spatula and light rose icing to ice cakes smooth. Prepare cakes for stacked construction.

Use tip 18 and dark rose and black icings to fill in squares with pull-out stars, piping pull-out stars all the same length. Each square will have four rows of four stars each. Alternate dark rose and black icing from square to square in each row both horizontally and vertically.
