first off id like to state that i do not appreciate the deleting of my previous post regarding this shoe cake. which ever moderator deleted it made me go insane trying to find it, and completely screwed up my schedule. i had two wonderful people with two very helpful answers that could help me create a totally rad shoe cake. thats a total loss, and i find it inconsiderate, and unprofessional. can you at least notify me by email next time instead of making me go berserk trying to find the post? I dont know if its a link issue, but COMMUNICATE WITH ME.

ANYWAYS, on a brighter note i will attempt to repost this again, and hopefully the two people that helped me out are willing to take time off their hands to re type their advice.

It's called Cornelli Lace and there is a tutorial on CC, or you could google it: http://cakecentral.com/articles/99

Thanks Dayti! Will do! It looks like an incredibly difficult technique! Any advice for beginners?

I don't think it's difficult, but it can be time consuming if you have to cover a large area. It's important that you can't see the start or finish of your lines...it should just be a long, very wiggly line made up of S's and R's really. If you have to start and stop at all, you can clean your joins up with a damp brush. Good luck!
