I need to find out how to make a black lace that is flexible.  I am thinking sugar veil though I have never worked with it before.  I've seen these cakes and was wondering if this is sugar veil or what?  Any ideas???

I think this one is probably real lace (above) but how did they get it to fit so nicely??

If you look at the first one, you will see "darts" in the corners, indicating it is real lace. Like a making a non-fitted sheet into a fitting one, it is folded to fit, and tucked under the tier.


The second one is all piping, and the 3rd id fondant pieces stuck on then "laced" together with piping.


Sugar veil is such a cool product and it can be done with it, to a different extent, depending on whatever mats and molds you can afford, or find. I am certain none of these are examples of it.
