AHi everyone, Has anyone used white lace over a colored buttercream before? What did you back the lace with? I want the color to show through the holes, so parchment and wax paper are out. I'm thinking an acetate strip will work, but I'm open to suggestions!

Thanks! M

If you are using real lace you would have to have it adhered to something clear that could also adhere to the butter cream. That could be tricky. Have you thought of making some Sugarveil lace? That is easy to apply and no problem with the underlying colored buttercream  showing. Below is a picture of a cake I did recently using the Sugarveil.

AThe client has provided the lace. It matches decorations she is using. My theory is that I can wrap the cake with acetate then wrap the lace over it. Then I only have to attach the ends of the lace.
