swiss merinque butter cream works wonderfully and is pretty easy to make (easier than italian merinque plus you heat the egg whites to the point where they are food safe).

i did a spongebob cake, complete with star tip covered pineapple house, and it worked beautifully. (it's not in my pictures because there was a person in the photos, lol).

if you have a large area to cover in stars like i did, i would recommend two bags of icing so that you can switch them to keep the icing from getting too warm. i lay the bag i am not using on a cold surface while i use the other one. you won't need to do this trick if you are only coving a small to moderate area.

Please remember if you use a non-crusting recipe, not to bump it!
