Allow the white to dry before piping the adjoining face color. Fill in the cats nose outline with white dark pink run sugar. Fill in the cat’s chin/mouth area with white run sugar icing. Fill in the cat’s face with desired run sugar colors. Shown are black, grey, yellow, and orange. Allow the filled area to set completely. When the cat faces have set, piped on the eyes with black run sugar. Pipe the whiskers and tiger stripe details with black (or dark orange) royal icing in a pastry bag fitted with a #1 tip.
