The bride wanted something in ivory that looked like lace, so I did a flat ivory b.c. icing, with the white cornelli lace to contrast and get the desired effect.
Very, very pretty! Love the ivory color
The cake is beatifully made and the lace is very pretty and elegant.
I love it! The bottom tier reminds me of a garter belt! It's a good thing, the design is so beautiful!!
what a pretty cake!
I love this cake, it's simple BUT elegant. Plainly beautiful!
Very well done. Beautiful!!!!
This is wonderful. May I ask how you get the cornelli lace on the sides of the cake? Great job!
I put the cake on my turntable, which is on the countertop. Then, when doing the side cornelli lace, I sit down in a kitchen table chair, which places me below the cake. That way, I can angle my tip slightly to the side and down as I squeeze, and the icing flows out to lay perfectly on the side of the cake that way. Thanks to all for the nice comments!
very pretty & so elegant
You did an awesome job with the conelli lace! I love the ivory/white combination. Excellent work!!
So beautiful! I love the white over the ivory--very elegant!
This was very nice. I read one of your comments in the forum about getting the sides smooth. Please tell me the trick!!
To get the sides smooth....I use the decorators icing recipe in the Wilton book, but use all Criscoe, and 2 T. Karo white syrup added to it. Crumb coat cake, let dry, put final coat of icing on and let "crust" slightly. Then, using VIVA paper towels, place towel over side of cake, rub gently with your hand in an up and down motion, then lightly lift VIVA towel from icing. Continue doing tops and sides. Works great!
beautiful!!!! looks like a heck of a lot of work went into it!!!!
