I'm making a tea party cake and I'd like the tablecloth to have some lace trim. Any tips? I don't want it too overdone, just some detail.
i was reading one of the wilton weddings books last night and i actually saw where they took a piece of fondant and covered it with a scrap of real lace. they then spread icing on top of the lace and gently peeled it off. the lace pattern was transferred to the fondant with icing it looked pretty too.
another idea is to make a panel of fondant and make eyelet lace: take a small round tip and "punch" holes into one edge of the fondant. then take some icing and outline the hole and add additional lace-like edging to jazz it up.
I'm sure someone else will be able to give more/better advice. Good luck!
Thanks, I'll try that.
