Does anyone have any idea how to accomplish this "lace" look? For the life of me, I can't figure it out. Is it an impression mat? Or is it freehand piping (I hope not!!!!).

Is there a photo or link to show what you are talking about?

That cake was done by Katie Watts of Couture Cakes, definitely hand piped. You can tell with the close up on her site. It's a beautiful cake though.

Hand-piped royal icing and brush embroidery.

Ladies, what about the shimmer? How do I get the piping to have that shimmer? I can't imagine that she went over all the piping with luster dust.....

Not all of it is shimmery. I can see that the large areas where the flowers are have shimmer, even on the inside.

The pearls are also shiny, almost look like real ones.

And I think that people do paint on top of royal icing piping when they need to. She could have just brushed it on top.
