i'm new to a lot of these techniques, and definitely a beginner compared to everyone, so i am hoping someone can tell me what the technique is called when it looks like lace on a cake--- like little squiggly lines. ive seen it mainly on wedding type cakes.
is it (or can it) be done with buttercream? or is it something different? i have ZERO experience/knowledge with royal icing.... i have a little experience with fondant, but know nothing abotu royal... and im thinking maybe thats what it is?
and, next question, does anyone know if there is a youtube video tutorial out there to show me how its done?
i appreciate any help!
It's called cornelli lace or sotos. You can use buttercream. Don't know abut you tube but probably.
Don't know if there is a video, but the wilton practice board set has a corneli lace practice sample.
Jennifer--real cornelli lace that doesn't touch the other lines and has no right angles etc. makes me tired.
I just get a real small tip (I clip a parchment bag but you could use a small small tip) and I get a looser icing and I just let 'er rip and it scrolls and twirls and furls --it's one of my favorite things to make. Then I found out that they call that sotos. I just thought it was just cornelli run amuck. I just din like having to think about it while I piped.
If you're searching for examples, it's called Sotas.
