I am in a pickle.

I am working on a wedding cake for tomorrow evening. The bride gave me pretty much free range, she did give me photos of somethings she likes.

the cake is a 10" 8" 6". I have spent the past 1 hour so doing cornelia lace on the bottom layer. I don't like it! Cake is fondant, I did lace with royal icing.

Any suggestions on how to get it off?? I have taken a sharp blade and have been scraping it off. There is residue left. HELP PLease.

You could try painting the residue with vodka, to see if it would get rid of it. I've had the same issue that you're describing though and I ended up pulling the fondant off and covering the tier again...I didn't try the vodka because I didn't want to take a chance with someone's wedding cake, and I had plenty of fondant.

All I can think of is maybe take a little vodka or other quick evaporating alchohol or extract and rubbing it off? With a brush or some type of clean lint free cloth. Are you going to be putting some other type of decoration on the tier?

Yes I will put a different kind of scroll work, but not as heavy.
