Star tip border

The star tip creates the most celebrated, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated edges of the star tip makes ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out.


Step 1: Use Tip 16

Fit the decorating bag with round tip 16 and fill 1/2 full with medium consistency icing. Hold the decorating bag straight up; the tip should be 1/8 in. above surface as shown. Squeeze bag to form star.

Step 2: Pull Tip Up

Stop pressure and pull tip straight up and away.

Step 3: Size of Stars

Increase or decrease pressure to change star tip size. Stars will be neatly formed only if you stop squeezing before you pull tip away.

Step 4: Place Stars Close Together

Place stars close enough together so that there are no gaps between. Use this method for star fill-in to cover a section or the entire surface of the cake with stars.
