SOMEBODY...ANYBODY...HELP ME...lol... I have to do a black white and hot pink cake. Here are the details..... NO fondant, white buttercream and the topper will be covered with hot pink artificial roses. The kicker is that I need to cover the cake with black BUTTERCREAM lace. Can someone please help me out with a pattern or is there a stamp or something... i need to know how to do those. I'm a pretty good decorator, so I should be able to follow directions pretty well. ALSO, can black zebra stripes be done with buttercream (thats a different cake).

You can stencil on buttercream.

I do butter cream tiger stripes often. See page 2 in my gallery, I have an 8" gold cake done with black butter cream tiger stripes. Can't answer the lace question.

Do you mean Lacey lace or the cornelli lace...that squiggly line look?
There is a stamp for the cornelli lace IF you really need one, but honestly that is more of a squeeze it out thing and not something where you have to follow a pattern really...I know real technical terms. Sorry.
If you mean lacey lace, I have no idea other thatn PP said stencil.
HTH.

I would try this on a small cake first. I have made a lace buttercream wedding cake that I am posting the photo. I did not decorate cakes for about 30 years and have only started again for my family. I am rather rusty and you will do much better. I would try buying or making chocolate icing and add black food coloring to it. If I had to do this cake over again I would use a smaller tip and plan the flowers a little better. As long as the piping didn't bleed, I think you could pipe on black lace. Good Luck. I could not attach the photo so here is a link of the photo.

Have you checked into Sugarveil? Easy to use and it would be so much easier to apply to the cake. Works well with silicone molds.
