I normally use tip#2 and make "R" and "S" shapes, making sure the lines do not touch. Start and stop at the edges of the design so you can cover the ends with a border of some sort.

Hi If you want a fine delicate lace use a supatube PME #1 tip and use royal icing. It's beautiful. Key: Just make curvey not straight lines and keep as close as possible without letting them touch.

The tinier the tip, the more delicate the cornelli is. I also use the #1 - think s's, c's - just don't overlap - it is a beautiful effect when done correctly!

be sure to use a #1 tip.. s's and r's. and keep close together... if it is on a buttercream cake i use buttercream... if on a fondant cake.. i use royal icing.... just make it look delicate...
