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 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.

Toy Story Buzz Lightyear Cake is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buzz Lightyear My oldest Grandson was turning 3 and he wanted a Buzz Lightyear cake. I have taken 4 series of Wilton lessons at Michaels, so I felt pretty comfortable taking this on. I downloaded and printed both the supply list and the directions and followed them closely. I printed out the color picture from Wilton and thusly had no issue with a "reverse" print that some of you had. I put Buzz on top of a 2 layer filled cake base, covered in fondant and then personalized it with fondant cut outs. It was a lot of work spread out over 3 days, but it turned out beautiful!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have only taken Wilton course 1, so I wasn't sure I could handle this. My son LOVES Buzz, so I was willing to give it a try. The hardest thing for me was only using a tip 1 for the outline. The line was so small it didn't show up like in the picture. So, after adding all the colors, I reoutlined with tip 3. Much better! The cake turned out great and my son was thrilled!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I coloured the icing, and baked the cake the day before which still took a few hours to do. The second day I did all the icing, which was a lot more time consuming then I excepted. (4-5 hours) The mirror image was a bit difficult to figure out, but in the end the cake turned out amazing.
