If anyone can list links, photos or tutorials of cakes decorated with Australian lace, I'd really appreciate it. I can't seem to find anything. I've heard people mention it and it's a technique that I was hoping to learn.

Ive done a cake with Lace and Extension work, i didnt realise the type varied amongst countries,

I just drew a design on graph paper (helps to keep things symmetrical), lay wax paper over the top and piped over it using a 00 tube. Once dry slowly and carefully lift it off using a small spatula

anyway will post pic for you, i hope this helps....

Sorry, forgot to mention, sometimes it is worth making a more complicated design where there are lots of points joining/ touching, the result is stronger and less prone to breaking than very simple designs....
