Starfish Royal Icing Transfer with Template
It’s “Template Tuesday!” For today’s pattern I wanted to do something fun so I made these Starfish Royal Icing Transfers. I am providing the patter so all you have to do is “Print and Pipe.”I am so happy with the emails and comments you all are sending me telling me how much you like the idea of free royal icing templates and for sharing your ideas. I am working on them now and several more of my own but, in the meantime, I hope you enjoy these starfish royal icing transfers.
Starfish Royal Icing Transfer Supplies:
Royal Icing Recipe
Lemon Yellow 15 Second Icing
#2 PME tip
Wilton Pearlized Sprinkles (Sugar Pearls)
Black AmeriColor Gel
10/0 Paintbrush (or any small brush you have)
Optional: Airbrush Machine with Lemon Yellow Airbrush Color
I like these starfish royal icing transfers because they also make cute stars transfers. If you are having a beach theme you can simply add them and some brown sanding sugar to cupcakes. If you want to use them as stars, you could pair them with a moon and it is an entirely new theme. I plan to use them on cupcakes for my beach theme. And I want to make “The Cow Jumped Over the Moon” cake so they will work perfectly with moons in the cupcakes.

Once you have your template set up, begin by outlining each starfish with the lemon yellow icing and the #2 tip.
Then, flood them. While they are still wet, add the sugar pearl eyes and let dry completely.
If you want to airbrush them, use the Lemon Yellow airbrush gel, and lightly spray the edges. For more information on airbrush, click here.
Next, with the end of the paintbrush and the black color gel, add a dot to each eye.
Then, with the 10/0 paintbrush and the black color gel, paint on a happy little smile. You may want to dip your brush into some water and practice on a piece of parchment paper, a plate, or an old cookie before you paint the mouth. It is easy! Don’t be afraid because you can do it.
Once your starfish royal icing transfers are dry, you can store them into an airtight container in a cool dry place. I really like these little guys. Their cute faces make me happy! I hope they make you happy too!
Le me know if you have any other transfer ideas. I will get to work on them for you. If you would like information on how to store royal icing transfers, click here.
Love the silly smiles! 🙂
Thanks Jennifer! I made them goofy like me!
These are so cute I’d be tempted to slap one on a turkey sandwich. Or anything else that needed a little brightening up! Yellow is such a happy color.
Thanks for another great edition of Template Tuesday!
Hahah! I don’t think turkey and stars is quite right. Isn’t it chicken and stars soup? Hahahah
Silly goose! You could put those on brussels sprouts and I bet kids would eat them. They are magical!
LOVE these! Makes me smile thinking about when my teachers would put a star on my papers… I was always so proud of those darn stars.
Well then D.J. all of these stars are for YOU!!!!!
Yeahhh ME! haaaaaaaaaaa
these are just the cutest guys ever!!
You are the cutest thing EVER Carrie!!!! 😉
How cute are those?!!! Adorable! Thanks for another great template! Hugs!
Adorable…thanks so much for sharing!!
I enjoy your templates very much. My grand daughter is having a pool party next week and I will use this transfer to make royal icing toppers for her. I’ve also made the bees which turned out great. Thank you for sharing. How about a flip flop transfer for summer parties?
Thanks so much for template tuesday….Love ALL your ideas…. and it seems YOUR ideas spawn new ideas of my own… You Inspire me!…..Thanks! Any chance you will get a CRAB and a PALM TREE? I’m very much in need of those two items! Also, what do you do to get your royal icing so SHINY…?…. mine never comes out shiny! :s
Thanks so much! I am glad you find inspiration here. That is exactly why I started a blog! 🙂
I will work on a crab and a palm tree for you. I will try to have them posted in the next few weeks.
Also, a great way to make your icing shine is to place the cookies in front of a fan once you decorate and they will dry shiny.
