The Star Tip

I have decorated a few cakes using only the star tip...they are a lot of fun to make. I pretty basic decorating technique and anyone can learn in seconds. Here are some examples of mine:

The Girl Scout. I made this for Brooklyn's Girl Scout troop. They were having a Halloween party/birthday celebration for the founder of the Girl Scouts.

The Burbank Titans. This cake was a special request for Brooklyn's cheer squad. They were having a "cheer hair party" for a competition the following day. This is what I came up with. The frosting is actually dark purple, but in the picture it looks almost blue.

I would encourage anyone that is afraid to decorate a cake to try using the star tip to "color in" the cake. It can be time consuming but well worth the effort and very simple to learn. You can even use a shape pan, then just fill in the shapes or character. Like this Big Bird cake for example:

I just plopped two fluffy clouds in the sky with a #12 tip to finish it off.

Thanks for reading. I hope you are all enjoying my journey as much as I am enjoying sharing it with you.

Until next time....
