The ball shape makes bold borders and is the first step to learn for figure piping. Vary the basic look by adding stars, dots or spirals on the ball shapes.

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

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.

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.

The King's Cake is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used the basis of this design to make a birthday cake for "my little prince." I changed it a bit in that I did it all with buttercream, took out the large diamond and changed the ovals to diamonds. This gave me a space to write his name (important for birthday cakes!). I kind of wish I had done the gems in gel as they would have "popped" more, but overall it was a very successful cake!
