Anyone has any idea on how to make this kind of net? Is it made out of fondant? Photo from http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1482713/spirit-of-the-gulf-beach-comber

Sugarveil should work for it.

Use a lattice Cutter. This picture is of thick heavy dough. But you will get a more defined effect with thinly rolled out material

TexasSugar: Unfortunately, Sugarveil is not that accessible in our area. Will fondant work?

Lynne3: Oh! Great tool. I'll try to find one. Thanks!

I have actually used the lattice cutter. Your fondant needs to be very thin and you need to apply a lot of pressure when you roll to make the cuts. The cutter is just like the one for strips - - it's plastic so it doesn't cut cleanly every time. Also, your piece will dry quickly so get it in the shape you need it as quickly as possible. HTH

Hi Frankie,

Here's the instructions for making the SugarVeil "Veil" technique like in the picture: http://www.sugarveil.com/confectionery_icing/comb_techniques.htm.

We also have the Dot Veil Confectioners' Mat which will make that net, too: http://www.sugarveil.com/mat/sugarveil-mat.htm

Let me know if you've any other questions - thank you!
