- Piping bag
- Wilton 1M nozzle
- Sandwich bag
- Rolling pin
- 4cm star cutter
Step 1Bake your cupcakes and after cooling in the tins for 10 minutes, turn out and leave to cool completely on a wire rack.
Knead the fondant and modelling paste together until evenly mixed and then roll the paste to about 1cm thick and cut 12x stars with the 4cm cutter.
Step 2Once you have cut all the stars, snap the lengths of spaghetti in half and push into the paste.
Step 3Mix the royal icing sugar with a few drops of water until you have a thick paste, then add to a small sandwich bag.
Step 4Snip a tiny corner off the sandwich bag, making sure you snip away from the icing as you don’t want the tip to fall in the food. Pipe around the edge of the stars with the royal icing.
Add the white sanding sugar straight away or the icing will dry and it won’t stick.
