Would anyone have an idea of how I could make a dress silhouette (flat, fondant on the top of a cake) look like it is lace? Other than piping small detail in Royal Icing, I'm stuck for ideas. The cake, itself, will be pretty small - 7" round. I'm afraid the Royal Icing idea won't look delicate enough... There are always so many wonderful ideas from such creative people on this site... so thank you in advance!
Thank you so much, linedancer! This is exactly the effect I was thinking. I REALLY appreciate your thoughts and the photo, too. You cookies are beautiful. -Kristy
You could try a pasta roller, I have one and use is when I need to cut thin straight strips...and it works like a charm ...hope this helps
linedancer, which patchwork cutters or embossers did you use on those cookies? They are beautiful!
You are welcome and thanks for your kind words about my cookies. Here is the patchwork set I used. This one is from Country Kitchen because their picture is better, I think Global Art sells them too:
Good Luck with your project
Thank you so much!
I'll have to get myself some of these. I've been using impression mats and I like them, but these sound really cool.
They are great, this was the first set I bought, just to try, and I use it all the time. Lucky choice for me. I use impression mats sometimes too, but you can place your embossing more precisely with these. Also if you are into it, you can paint the image, or use what Marion Frost calls Mexican paste and actually use them as cutters, paint the resulting form and place them on cakes. Here is a web site about them:
Thank you for the information! My set comes tomorrow, I can't wait to try it!
You are welcome, good luck
