Star Fill In Zoom

Star Fill In

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.

Step 2
Step 2

Hold the bag at 90° angle (straight up) with tip about 1/8 in. to 1/4 in. above surface. Squeeze the bag to form star. Stop pressure and pull tip straight up and away.

Step 3
Step 3

Pipe a row of stars uniformly and close together in a line.

Step 4
Step 4

Continue piping additional rows, adjusting the tip position so that the stars are piped in between the stars of the previous row to fill in the cake surface without any gaps.

Step 5


Maintaining the same pressure when piping the icing will assure that the stars are identical in shape and size.

Change star size by using smaller or larger star tips.

Because these close-together stars require so much piping from the same bag, it?s a good idea to keep replenishing the icing. Replenish icing when it gets soft to prevent stars from being poorly defined.

Star Fill In is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this technique for almost everything I do. From cakes to cookies it does not only give the impression of suttle beauty but it also will turn any cake into a masterpiece. I have found it easier to medium consistancey and during the summer months if I'm decorating a cake I usually decorate it in the morning time to reduce the risk of the icing starting to run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used this with most of my cakes and feel it is easy. Why I put somewhat is the fact it uses a lot of frosting so you are filling your bag often. Theis also makes it easier to go around outlines of facial features or other details on a cake. I love it and I know others will enjoy it too.
