Buttercream: Cake Decorating: Star Tip Decoration

Use star tip to decorate cakes easily giving it a ridged icing texture. Use Medium consistency to make sure the stars stay in place and hold that sharp edge 3-D form.

  • Use start tip 21
  1. Fill a bag with medium consistency icing.

  2. Position the bag at a 90 degree angle (straight up) from the surface of the cake. Make sure the tip is not touching the cake. The tip should be about 2 millimeters away from the surface.

  3. Squeeze the bag without moving the tip until you reach the desired thickness of the star (big or small). This will form your star.

  4. Stop squeezing and pull away and up slowly (to make sure the icing stays on the cake and doesn't lift with the tip).

TIP- Star tip decorating for large cakes:

To cover a large area of a cake in a painless and faster way, use the Triple Star Tip. This tip will form three stars next to each other at once!!!!
